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 of the 23rd Annual Truckee River Day & Fair! Special thanks to our Group Leaders, partners, funders, and volunteers. Approximately 400 volunteers completed restoration work at 8 sites this year. We planted native vegetation, improved meadow conditions, and protected sensitive areas. Watch for our newsletter in the coming weeks for photos and results.
