Truckee River Day

Be part of what started it all

It was the first Truckee River Day in 1996 that spawned today’s Truckee River Watershed Council. Since then thousands of nature-lovers have volunteered for hundreds of restoration projects throughout the watershed.

Thank you to everyone for powering the comeback of Truckee River Day & Fair on Sunday October 17th, 2021! 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.

Save the Date today! The 27th Annual Truckee River Day & Fair will be Sunday, October 16, 2022. Thank you to the Town of Truckee, Truckee Chamber of Commerce and the Tahoe Truckee Community Foundation for supporting this year’s Truckee River Day & Fair through their Truckee Core Values Fund grant program!
