Northern Sierra Partnership

The Northern Sierra Partnership (NSP) is a collaborative initiative to preserve, restore, and enhance the magnificent natural landscape of the Northern Sierra Nevada, and build the foundation for sustainable rural prosperity. We work with private landowners, public agencies, nonprofit groups, and local communities to:


the sweeping natural landscapes that define us as a region;


the ecological vitality of our forests, meadows and rivers, and the landscape’s resilience to natural disturbance like fire and flood;


opportunities to enjoy our region’s extraordinary natural assets through investments in recreation, environmental education, and sustainable tourism;


the growth of vibrant rural communities that sustain -- and are sustained by -- the healthy landscapes that surround them.


NSP’s five partners are the Feather River Land Trust, the Sierra Business Council, The Nature Conservancy, the Truckee Donner Land Trust, and the Trust for Public Land. The Partnership is managed by Resources Legacy Fund, a non-profit 501(c)3 organization based in Sacramento, CA. All contributions to the Northern Sierra Partnership are tax deductible.
