About Us

Sierra Forest Legacy - Formed in 1996, as the Sierra Nevada Forest Protection Campaign, the Campaign's partners, including The Wilderness Society, Sierra Club, Friends of the River, and the Central Sierra Environmental Resource Center, had been working independently on Sierra Nevada issues since the 1980s. The Campaign was formed with the primary goal of protecting and restoring Sierra Nevada national forests and to coordinate and focus the efforts of its member groups and maximize their effectiveness. The Sierra Nevada Forest Protection Campaign became a part of the California Wild Heritage Campaign in 1999, but in 2002 was reestablished as an independent coalition focused exclusively on Sierra Nevada national forest issues.

In 2007, the Campaign changed its name to Sierra Forest Legacy to better reflect its expanded mission and vision of protecting Sierra Nevada forests and communities.

Sierra Forest Legacy is a fiscally-sponsored project of Tides Center, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and the nation's largest fiscal sponsor.
