(AUBURN, Calif.) – The Sierra Nevada Conservancy (SNC), a state agency focused on supporting and improving the environmental, economic, and social well-being of the Sierra Nevada Region, will host its Governing Board meeting March 5 in downtown Sacramento.
The meeting starts at 9:00 a.m. in the California Department of Food and Agriculture Auditorium located at 1220 N Street. The Board will consider more than $13.5 million in potential new grant funding to 27 different projects around the 25-million-acre Sierra Nevada region. Seventeen of the projects focus on forest health, seven on strategic land conservation, and three on resilient Sierra Nevada communities. Funding for all projects comes from Proposition 1 and Proposition 68.
Boardmembers may also authorize additional tree planting under the Plumas National Forest Good Neighbor Agreement to help restore the Moonlight Fire burn area. The Moonlight Fire burned 65,000 acres in 2007, half at high severity that converted forestland to shrubland.
The public is invited to attend the Board meeting and may register at sierranevada.ca.gov/our-board. The full meeting agenda, staff reports, recommended projects, and other information are also available online.
