Truckee River Day


Be part of what started it all


It was that first Truckee River Day in 1996 that spawned today’s Truckee River Watershed Council. Since then thousands of nature-lovers have shown up yearly with their gumboots, buckets, shovels and smiles to take on 100s of restoration projects throughout the watershed.


Work along side your friends—and make new ones—as together we:


  • restore designated sites
  • plant native vegetation
  • mulch sensitive areas
  • repair our mountain home


Thank you to everyone for your support o the 24th Annual Truckee Ri ver Day & Fair! Special thanks to our partners, Group Leaders, funders and volunteers. Approximately 600 volunteers completed restoration at 10 sites this year. We planted vegetaion, improved meadow conditions, and protected sensitive areas. Watch for our newsletter in the coming weeks for photos and results.


Save the date today! The 25th Annual Truckee River Day & Fair will be Sunday, October 18th, 2020!
