25th Anniversary Conference
August 15th-17th 2018


We are excited to announce the Sierra Nevada Alliance’s 25th Anniversary Conference in beautiful Kings Beach, California!
The theme for this special event is “Regional Resiliency.”

“Resiliency is the capacity to respond to a perturbation or disturbance by resisting damage and recovering quickly.”
The definition of resiliency is not only relevant for the Sierra Nevada that we want to create, but also the Sierra Nevada Alliance as an organization and where we stand today on a comeback.
At this year’s conference, we will collaborate and learn innovative ways to enhance the ecological resiliency of the Sierra. There are many opportunities and constraints that stand before us, but as a true alliance we can succeed.
Please join us for this lively three day conference event. We are planning a progressive, provocative agenda, with many networking opportunities, and fun to be had throughout!
