Our projects focus on the restoration and protection of streams, lakes, wetlands and meadows. Project goals are to protect and improve water quality, water supply, and wildlife habitat. Most projects are defined through a watershed assessment and include pre-project monitoring, restoration design, implementation, a Truckee River Day work project and post-project monitoring. On the majority of our projects, we work closely with state, federal and local agencies as well as non-profit and business organizations. Projects are funded through public grants, private foundation grants, and our generous partners and donors.

Here are some of our current projects:

 Perazzo Meadows:

Perazzo Meadows is a habitat-rich riparian and meadow system in the Little Truckee River watershed. The entire Perazzo Meadows project includes several sites, implemented in three phases.
