    • American River Conservancy just acquired the largest private inholding on the Sierra Nevada Crest south of Donner Summit. The Conservation Alliance is deeply proud to have played a role in the protection of this 10,115-acre forested landscape at the headwaters of the North and Middle Forks of the American River. The property is immediately west of North Lake Tahoe, CA, the Olympic Valley/Squaw Valley Ski Area and the Pacific Crest Trail. ARC will begin physical restoration work in June, 2016 and they expect to add over 3,000 acres to the Granite Chief Wilderness when the work is complete.  #KeepItWild #GraniteChief #SierraNevada #ARC #AmericanRiverConservancy #WesternStatesTrail #PCT #Tahoe
    • The Sacred Headwaters surround the Skeena, Nass, and Stikine Rivers in British Columbia. Skeena Watershed Conservation Coalition (SWCC) is working to secure permanent protection for one million acres of the Sacred Headwaters by connecting people to the landscape and inspiring individuals and communities to make the decisions about what kind of development they want to see in their watershed. We awarded a $40,000 grant to SWCC to support this important project.  #KeepItWild Photo Credit: Brian Huntington #Skeena #SWCC #SacredHeadwaters
