Northern Sierra

Northern Sierra Partnership

Saving fragile ecosystems throughout the northern Sierra Nevada.

The Northern Sierra Partnership (NSP) is a collaborative initiative to conserve, restore, and enhance the magnificent natural landscape north of Lake Tahoe.

In 2017 Bently Foundation provided $100,000 to help NSP leverage significant Federal and State funds that helped purchase conservation easements on ~30,000 acres of Sierra Valley. The valley’s massive wetlands support the greatest diversity of birds in the Northern Sierra and serve as a key stopover on the Pacific Flyway. The conservation easements will ensure that future development does not endanger the delicate natural ecosystem that supports so much crucial wildlife.
