A half-day technical symposium on the Bear-Yuba watershed and the oak woodland foothills of theSierra Nevada presented by the Bear-Yuba Partnership
The waterways, oak woodlands, and ranches in the Nevada, Placer, and Yuba County foothills provide critical wildlife habitat and migration connectivity, scenic open space, and convey vital water from Sierra Nevada snow melt to the people and agricultural lands of California. The foothills also sustain local economies through agriculture and unique recreational opportunities. Please join us to learn about new scientific research regarding the importance of the foothill region, funded by the Sierra Nevada Conservancy and administered by the Sierra Cascade Land Trust Council. Come learn about why the foothills are significant for water quality and conveyance, biodiversity, climate change adaptation, the rural economy, and more.
