With support from the Hewlett Foundation and several other donors, the 10,115-acre American River Headwaters property along the Sierra Nevada Crest, west of Lake Tahoe, will be protected by the Northern Sierra Partnership, a fiscally sponsored project of Community Initiatives. This grant will support the acquisition-related and transaction-related costs of the land acquisition, permanently protecting this area from timber harvesting and other commercial development. In addition, under the Wilderness Act, approximately 3,000 acres of this property, which are adjacent to the Granite Chief Wilderness, will be designated as wilderness through administrative action, if donated to the Forest Service.
