About Us About Us
The Sierra Institute, then Forest Community Research, began in 1993 working out of a small office in a winery in Westwood, California. In 1996, the organization relocated to the rural Northern Sierra Nevada town of Taylorsville, California (population 154), where it remains today. Our Mission is to promote healthy and sustainable forests and watersheds by investing in the well-being of rural communities and strengthening their participation in natural resource decision-making and programs. Recognizing the direct relationship rural communities have with forest landscapes, Sierra Institute has advanced integrative programs that support rural environmental, economic, and community health at local, regional, and national levels for the past twenty-five years.
