The Sierra Nevada Watershed Improvement Program Summit:
Taking A Regional Approach to Implementing California’s Climate Goals
The Sierra Nevada Region is California’s biggest carbon sink, but many of our Sierra Nevada forests are unhealthy, and have suffered unprecedented tree mortality from bark beetles, drought, and an increase in high-severity wildfire. These events result in immediate greenhouse gas emissions from smoke plumes and decaying dead trees, and long-term loss of sequestration. Without immediate action, the Sierra Nevada will continue to emit massive amounts of greenhouse gas and lose the ability to store and sequester carbon. Learn more about how the Sierra Nevada Watershed Improvement Program is working to retain Sierra Nevada forests as a carbon sink for California and prevent this critical Region from becoming a carbon source.
