Testing New Approaches on the Ground Sierra Nevada Watershed Improvement Program

As called for in the Watershed Improvement Program (WIP) Regional Strategy, the first WIP pilot watershed was selected in the summer of 2017. The Tahoe-Central Sierra Initiative (TCSI) is testing a variety of innovative, new, and underutilized finance, governance, and process models to increase the pace and scale of watershed restoration in the Tahoe-Central Sierra Area.

Tahoe-Central Sierra Initiative
“We have taken steps towards addressing the three biggest barriers to restoration in the Sierra Nevada, but to really make change across the Region, we need to drill down and test some new ways of doing business on the ground. That is why we have decided to focus in on a series of game changing efforts in the Tahoe and Central Sierra areas of the Sierra Nevada Region.” Jim Branham, Sierra Nevada Conservancy

The TCSI has secured a $5 million California Climate Investment grant from CAL FIRE, and is in the process of developing tools to prioritize work and measure progress towards resilience. Lessons learned in the TCSI can be translated to other parts of the Sierra Nevada Region, to support efforts across the Region that increase the pace and scale of restoration.
