Why the Sierra Institute for Community & Environment?
The Sierra Institute for Community and Environment's core mission is to support rural communities and the natural habitats that surround and support them.
The ForestFest is a revitalization of the old Solar Cook-Off and Music Festival in Indian Valley that previously thrived for 20 plus years. This intimate but vibrant festival has and will continue to celebrate the beauty, connectedness, and charm of rural life in the high Sierra. The Sierra Institute for Community and Environment is committed to bringing back this timeless tradition to highlight the heart and soul of Indian Valley, stimulate the local economy, and raise money to support Sierra Institute's mission.
