The Northern Sierra Summer Home Owners Association was founded to inform and protect the interests of cabin owners in the Eldorado National Forest as well as to advocate that Recreation Residence permit holders keep an abiding interest in the stewardship and protection of National Forest land.
The officers and members of NSSHA seek to assist the National Forest Supervisor, District Rangers and other Forest Service employees in their mission of preserving and managing recreational opportunities for all.
