The Truckee River region—like many places where the beauty of nature draws people who revel in it —is threatened. Fish are rapidly declining. Crucial invertebrates are dwindling. Entire meadows are drying up. 150 years of human impact—from mining, grazing, logging, rail and highway expansion and old-time development—has left the Truckee with the EPA rating “polluted”. It’s not resilient enough to withstand increases in population and climate change. We need to intervene. We exist to transform and protect the vitality of this area—so that nature and humanity can thrive together for generations to come.
In 2018, we’re moving ahead with a number of projects for which we will hire consultants and contractors.
