Northern Sierra Partnership

In October 2008, The Trust for Public Land and four other conservation organizations — Feather River Land Trust, Truckee Donner Land Trust, Sierra Business Council, and The Nature Conservancy — joined forces to create The Northern Sierra Partnership (NSP), a collaborative initiative to preserve, restore, and enhance the magnificent natural landscape of the Northern Sierra Nevada, and build the foundation for sustainable rural economies.

Working with private landowners, public agencies, nonprofit groups, and local communitie, the Partnership's goals are to:

  • Preserve the sweeping natural landscapes that define us as a region
  • Restore the ecological vitality of our forests, meadows and rivers, and the landscape's resilience to natural disturbance like fire and flood
  • Expand opportunities to enjoy our region's extraordinary natural assets through investments in recreation, environmental education, and sustainable tourism
  • Support the growth of vibrant rural communities that sustain – and are sustained by – the healthy landscapes that surround them
