We will also consider applications from Nevada based organizations who do a significant amount of work in California.
From Mt. Whitney to the Feather River, from the Foothills to the Summits, at organizations both big and small, our AmeriCorps Members have contributed to restoring the health of the Sierra’s precious watersheds through important service projects. SNAP Members have removed invasive species, stabilized stream banks, educated thousands of Sierra Nevada Residents on local and regional watershed issues, cleaned up hundreds of miles of river, built numerous trails, monitored water quality at hundreds of sites and much, much more.
The Sierra Nevada AmeriCorps Partnership, a program of the Sierra Nevada Alliance, is currently accepting applications from California & Nevada Sierra Nevada conservation organizations and agencies to become a Sierra Nevada AmeriCorps Partnership Host Site for our upcoming 2018-19 SNAP Program, contingent on AmeriCorps approval.
