The Sierra Fund’s bi-annual conference, hosted at the heart of the glitter and devastation of what was California’s original Gold Rush, is the state’s primary venue for collaboration and action around addressing the ongoing effects of historic mining. This outcomes-oriented event draws hundreds of people who are leaders in their field including policymakers, landowning and regulatory agencies, scientific researchers, water quality experts, reclamation firms, mining companies, public health specialists, and environmental advocates.
Reclaiming the Sierra 2015 is designed around evaluating and prioritizing action on cleanup and response to California’s abandoned mine lands. Hundreds of people who are leaders in their field will come together this April to discuss prioritization of cleanup sites, evaluate cleanup technologies, identify market opportunities for ethically produced gold and consider opportunities for collaboration of state and federal agencies on the issue.
To be a part of this powerful ongoing effort, register now for 'Reclaiming the Sierra 2015: The New Gold Rush' on the conference website at reclaimingthesierra.org.
