The Truckee River region—where the beauty of nature draws people who revel in it—is threatened. A damaging past (from mining, grazing and logging) coupled with a tenuous future (from drought, development, and climate change) impacts the outdoor lifestyle people cherish. TRWC reverses this impact by creating a vibrant and healthy watershed.
TRWC works from the premise that nature and humanity can thrive together. Our leadership brings diverse interests together (from nature lovers to economy drivers) to manage far-reaching solutions that enhance the resiliency of nature while accommodating community interests.
Our goal is for everyone and everything—from bugs and beavers, to bicyclists and birdwatchers— to flourish in this magnificent, interconnected environment.
In 2019, we’re moving ahead with a number of projects to meet this goal. We’ll be hiring a number consultants and contractors.
