Sierra Nevada Conservancy - Strategic Land Conservation Directed Grant Program. Deadline: 5/6/22.
Strategic Land Conservation Directed Grant Program
The Sierra Nevada Conservancy recognizes land conservation as an important tool for achieving holistic watershed health. The Strategic Lands Conserved goal in the SNC’s Strategic Plan focuses on protection of high-risk and/or high-priority lands. These lands provide a range of benefits including working landscapes; recreation opportunities; and protection of unique cultural and natural areas, as well as key wildlife habitat. Additionally, climate change is likely to have impacts yet unseen on the Region and strategically conserving land will become increasingly important as the Region adapts to further changes in the future.
The focus of this grant program is on land conservation through fee title or easement acquisition projects to protect lands threatened by conversion or lands providing critical resilience to climate change.
