The Northern Sierra Partnership (NSP) is a collaborative initiative to conserve, restore, and enhance the magnificent natural landscape of the northern Sierra Nevada, and build the foundation for sustainable rural prosperity.

We work with private landowners, public agencies, nonprofit groups, and local communities to:

Conserve the sweeping natural landscapes that define our region; Expand opportunities to enjoy our region’s extraordinary natural assets through recreation, sustainable tourism, and environmental education;
Restore the ecological vitality of our forests, meadows and rivers, and the landscape’s resilience to natural disturbances like fire and flood; Support the growth of vibrant rural communities that sustain—and are sustained by—the healthy natural landscapes that surround them.

NSP is a partnership of five organizations: the Feather River Land Trust, the Sierra Business Council, The Nature Conservancy, the Truckee Donner Land Trust, and the Trust for Public Land. Community Initiatives—a non-profit 501c(3) organization based in San Francisco—serves as our fiscal sponsor. All donations to NSP are tax-deductible to the full extent of the law.
