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 shown up yearly with their gumboots, buckets, shovels and smiles to take on hundreds of restoration projects throughout the watershed.

Volunteer alongside your friends – and make new ones – as together we:

  • restore meadows, forests, and more
  • plant native vegetation
  • mulch sensitive areas
  • repair our mountain home

Registration is required and is now open.

  • Let us know your project preferences and if you are part of a group. We will do our best to place you in your first choice project, but ask you to be flexible.
  • If you are part of a group, please register early.
  • The week before Truckee River Day, we will email with information about your project – the work you will be doing, where you will meet, and what you need to wear and bring.

Join us at the Truckee River Day Fair at Granite Flat Campground from 1pm to 4pm to celebrate the Truckee River! All are welcome. Come ready to have some fun – live entertainment, environmental education activities, art projects and more! Granite Flat is located 1 mile south of Truckee on Highway 89. Presented in partnership with Sierra Watershed Education Partnerships.

Thank you to our volunteers, partners and funders, including donors to the Truckee River Watershed Council, for their support.
