“This proves that a small office can make a huge impact helping the great local organizations that preserve our outdoors,” said Dr. Andrew Pasternak from Silver Sage Center for Family Medicine. “We also realize that in order for our patients to stay healthy, we need to preserve our environment and continue to promote people being physically active in the outdoors. Being part of the 1% For The Planet program allows us to do that.”

Organizations that benefited from Silver Sage’s donations in 2015 include: Headwaters Science Institute, Truckee River Watershed Council, League to Save Lake Tahoe, Truckee Donner Land Trust, Lahontan Audubon Society, Tahoe Institute for Natural Sciences, Animal Ark, Friends of Nevada Wilderness, Great Basin Bird Observatory, Reno Bike Project, Poedunk, and Truckee Trails Foundation.
