The Sierra Fund launches series on restoration and resilience projects in the region

Posted by Lauren Hertel on Wednesday, April 22 2020




In honor of Earth Day's 50th anniversary today, Switzer Trustee Elizabeth "Izzy" Martin, CEO of The Sierra Fund, recounted some personal reflections about the first Earth Day on April 22, 1970.

This is just the first in a series of “lunch-n-learn” programs which will provide a virtual platform for connecting around projects that restore ecosystem and community resiliency in the Sierra Nevada. The series begins with the Earth Day Presentation today April 22, celebrating the 50 year history of Earth Day and then introducing The Sierra Fund’s strategic approach towards restoring ecosystem and community resiliency in the Sierra Nevada, a critical component of the environmental movement in California. Click here to learn more! 

Beginning next week, each Monday the release of each video will be followed by a Wednesday “lunch-n-learn” which will open the floor for a virtual Q&A to broaden and deepen our understanding of the projects and the role they play in protecting our beloved Sierra Nevada.
