Spanning 100 miles of lowlands, remote plains, and forested mountain terrain culminating in the lofty peaks of Goat and Snow Mountain, the Berryessa-Snow Mountain region encompasses nearly 319,000 acres of public lands. It's one of the one of the planet’s biological hotspots, home to bald and golden eagles, black bears, mountain lions, tule elk, and rare plants found nowhere else on earth. As one of the largest tracts of relatively undisturbed public lands in California, it’s an invaluable migration corridor for wildlife.
The Berryessa-Snow Mountain area’s natural features and easy accessibility from the San Francisco Bay Area and Sacramento make it an outdoor-lover’s paradise.
The Sierra Club is working to:
- Safeguard the region’s sensitive areas, rare plants, and natural beauty by securing permanent protections, which will help provide well-managed recreation opportunities, user education, and an economic boost for surrounding local communities.
