The Sierra Foothill Conservancy protects and conserves the region between Yosemite and Kings Canyon National Parks. This includes the Sierra Nevada and the Central Valley.

The Sierra Foothill Conservancy is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that was first established in 1996. It protects 50,540 acres of land and is currently over 2,100 members strong. The organization protects several ecosystems, including forests, vernal pools, grasslands, and the wildlife and flora that reside within them. Some of the major species in the region include the golden eagle, prairie falcon, valley elderberry longhorn beetle, California tiger salamander, and orange lupine.

In addition to conservation, the conservancy conducts research and scientific studies of the areas and offers recreational and educational opportunities. It is also in charge of multiple preserves, all of which have a deep history associated with them. These include the Austin and Mary Ewell Preserve at Fine Gold Creek, Feliciana Mountain Preserve, Haslett Basin Wildlife Preserve, Stockton Creek Preserve, and more. The conservancy has two operating offices: one in Mariposa, and the other in Prather.
