Location & Lodging

Plumas County is the true rural experience you've dreamed about: crystal clear lakes, trout-filled streams, fresh pine forests, star filled skies, and a natural friendliness that comes from small-town life. Located in northeastern California where the Sierra Nevada and Cascade mountains meet, Plumas County boasts more than 100 lakes, 1,000 miles of rivers and streams, and over a million acres of national forest. With only eight people per square mile, this rural, four-season mountain retreat offers beauty, solitude, and clean air, making it the perfect location for this annual Sierra Nevada Conservation & Wilderness Medicine Conference. The 2023 Sierra Nevada Conservation & Wilderness Medicine Conference will be held at a new venue: The UC Berkeley Forestry Camp. This is a remote venue. Cell service and Wifi are largely inaccessible. A landline is available for emergencies only.
