The Truckee River region’s beauty of nature draws people who revel in it. One hundred and fifty years of human impact – from mining, grazing, logging, rail and highway expansion, and old-time development – has left the Truckee threatened. It’s not resilient enough to withstand increases in population and impending climate change. We need to intervene and adapt.
Our mission is to bring the community together to restore, protect, and enhance the Truckee River Watershed. Our goal is for humans and nature to thrive, together, for a resilient future. We’re moving ahead with several projects to meet this goal and want you to join in. This year, we will be hiring consultants and contractors for projects for 2022 and 2023.

We work to make the watershed more resilient, sustainable, and alive – through managing projects, influencing policies, and engaging people. Thank you to our dedicated partners, many of whom are part of these RFPs and RFBs. Additionally, thank you to the donors of the Truckee River Watershed Council and our funders who make this work possible.
