Visions of the Lost Sierra now available!

After touring film festivals in two dozen cities across the country, we’re excited to release our documentary about the Wild & Scenic Middle Fork Feather River for all to view online.

Feather River Watershed

Protect our water

There’s an increased pressure to build more dams in California—threatening the Lost Sierra’s free-flowing rivers and the source of drinking water for 65% of Californians.

Where is the Lost Sierra?

Friends of Plumas Wilderness works in Northern California at the convergence of two major ecoregions: the Sierra Nevada and Cascade Mountains.  This area—the Lost Sierra—hosts the most diverse conifer forests on the planet and over 1,400 species of plants.

Save the places you love!

We rely on volunteers working to protect what they love about the Lost Sierra. Want to join us?

We take the long view

We bring people together to protect and maintain wild places so that what we love about the Lost Sierra—untamed nature, remote places, and clean water—is protected for generations to come.
