Sierra Day in the Capitol
The Sierra Fund and the Sierra Nevada Alliance have sponsored an annual event bringing citizen voices for the Sierra into the California State Capitol.
Participants are provided with basic training and tips, information on current issues, and appointments with a few legislators or legislative staff. Groups of two or three, including a leader, then disperse with the goal of bringing information and contact to every legislative office in the Capitol.
Citizen voices are an essential part of Sierra advocacy.
Sierra Day in the Capitol 2009 was June 24, 2009 - thanks to everyone who made the 7th Sierra Day a success! For the first time, Sierra Nevada Conservancy, CA Association of Resource Conservation Districts, CA Cattlemen's Association and Mountain Counties Water Agency were also co-sponsors.
