Dianna Suarez

Dianna Suarez,  a spokesperson and the Facebook Administrator for Friends of Bear River (FROBERI), went to work for the US Forest Service while a student at UC Santa Cruz. Over a period of 36 years, she grew to love and appreciate the forest and all the beings that make up the living world. After retiring in 2011, she got involved with the Buffalo Field campaign based in West Yellowstone Montana. She volunteers for this organization which protects the last wild buffalo. Dianna was drawn into the campaign for Our Bear River when Nevada Irrigation District proposed a fifth Dam on the already industrialized watershed. Having visited the river almost daily for many years, the living biosphere and especially the ancient trees spoke to her heart. She has been deeply involved in attending meetings, writing letters to the editor, making speeches, and standing up for this last Public Access to Bear River for the Nisenan people and everyone else.
