The Truckee River region—where the beauty of nature draws people who revel in it—is threatened. A damaging past (from mining, grazing and logging) coupled with a tenuous future (from drought, development, and climate change) impacts the forests, meadow, and streams people cherish. TRWC and our partners reverse this impact by creating a vibrant and healthy watershed.

TRWC works from the premise that nature and humanity can thrive together. Our leadership brings diverse interests together (from nature lovers to economy drivers) to manage far-reaching solutions that enhance the resiliency of nature while accommodating community interests.

Our goal is for everyone and everything—from bugs and beavers, to bicyclists and birdwatchers— to flourish in this magnificent, interconnected environment.

In 2020, we’re moving ahead with a number of projects to meet this goal. We’ll be hiring a number consultants and contractors.

Here is the current schedule (updated February 19th) which we will update periodically. The list of currently active RFPs can be accessed here.

It takes a dedicated team to do what we do. Thank you to our partners, many of whom are part of these RFPs and RFBs.

Restoring meadows. Reviving forests. Saving habitats. Thank you to the donors of the Truckee River Watershed Council and our funders who make this work possible.
