Sierra Watch turns development threats into conservation victories.

Inspired by the Sierra’s mountain ridgelines, deep pine forests, rich meadows, and crystal clear waters, we provide innovative strategic leadership to defend the places we love.

For more than twenty years, we’ve been building a remarkably impressive track record stopping damaging development proposals, generating funds to acquire lands of high value, and securing responsible land-use planning. 

Our own expertise includes campaign strategy, land-use law, media relations, and grassroots organizing.  We leverage these skills with direct access to the best experts in public interest litigation, habitat conservation, and planning.  And we follow through with integrity and discipline to ensure conservation success.

Sierra Watch’s proven brand of strategic leadership secures conservation outcomes for our shared mountain landscapes.  The lasting result is preservation of irreplaceable Sierra values, permanently protected for generations to come.
