Document Description
The project is the purchase of conservation easements over 2,720 acres of Sierra Pacific Industries (SPI) alpine forestlands; The Trust for Public Land is requesting $540,000 in funding from the Sierra Nevada Conservancy's Grant Program towards the purchase. Once acquired, the conservation easements will be held for permanent stewardship and monitoring by the Truckee Donner Land Trust, thereby permanently protecting watersheds important to California's water supply (including the Middle Yuba, Little Truckee, and Middle Fork Feather Rivers) because the conservation easeements will prevent conversion of forest land to residential and other development.
