Annual Tahoe Forest Stewardship Day
Annual Tahoe Forest Stewardship Day, Saturday, June 10, 2017, 8:30 am – 12:30 pm,
Volunteers of all ages and skill levels are invited to this fun, hands-on restoration day. By pitching in, you are improving the watershed habitats that surround Lake Tahoe. Healthy forests act as natural pollution filters to Keep Tahoe Blue.
Participants at the Spring Tahoe Forest Stewardship Day will assess the work done last year in the Angora Burn area and continue improving trails and thinning brush to give light to young trees. A light breakfast, refreshments and a prize will be provided to all volunteers.
Funding for this event provided through a grant from the United States Forest Service El Dorado County Resource Advisory Committee.
Lunch vouchers provided by Ernie’s Coffee Shop.

Be a Watershed Steward!
Join in hands-on water quality monitoring of our watershed. Monitoring teams will collect data that is used for restoration projects and overall watershed protection.
Snapshot Day covers as much geographic area as possible in order to capture a “snapshot” in time of water quality for the entire Truckee River watershed. Samples are taken from the Lake Tahoe Basin and follow the Truckee River watershed all the way to Pyramid Lake (see map below). To view Snapshot Day monitoring locations in Google Maps, CLICK HERE.

*Stream teams in Reno and Sparks will take samples on Friday, May 19th. Teams in all other areas will take samples on May 20th. If you have questions about which group to sign up with, please contact the site leader in your area.
