18th Annual Truckee River Day

18th Annual Truckee River Day
Living and traveling in the Lake Tahoe region provides an enormous benefit: outdoor recreation. With a diverse, impeccably maintained network of land and water trails, Lake Tahoe invites us to take advantage of its beauty. In our pure enjoyment of these stunning surroundings, however, it is easy to lose sight of the great impact that our feet, boats and bike tires have on these fantastic recreational passageways. Scores of volunteers from organizations such as the Tahoe Rim Trail Association, The League to Save Lake Tahoe, and the Tahoe Truckee Community Foundation take on projects every year that make it possible for us to use these great resources. Erosion, invasive species, pollution, human impacts and a host of other issues constantly threaten these outdoor areas that we hold so dear, but with careful attention and dedication we can keep these places open for the enjoyment of the community and its visitors. Although most open-ground maintenance projects are closed for the season, this weekend presents one of the best opportunities to get involved: Truckee River Day. The Truckee River Watershed Council is hosting the event on Sunday, October 20th, and you can register online for a variety of projects. The Donner Lake Boat Ramp Cleanup and Planting is great for people of all ages, or work up a sweat with Martis Wildlife Area Trail Maintenance. Get outdoors with your family and friends, put your body to work and make a positive impact our spectacular environment.
