Are you a Truckee-area landscaper? … a landscape designer? … in the nursery business? … part of a maintenance crew working in the watershed?

If so, this Lunch & Learn is for you! Join the Truckee River Watershed Council Friday, April 19th for a River-Friendly Landscaping and Weed Warriors Lunch & Learn to learn more about TRWC’s River-Friendly Landscaping and Weed Warriors programs. Stay for the added Weed Identification Workshop immediately following the Lunch & Learn session.

What’s in it for you?

  • Free lunch for Lunch & Learn attendees! But that’s not the most important reason…
  • River-Friendly Landscaping improves water quality by assisting residential property owners in voluntarily reducing or preventing soil erosion. You’ll learn how you and your clients can help the Truckee River watershed through implementation of River-Friendly Landscaping measures (BMP’s).
  • You’ll receive weed identification materials and learn more about our Weed Warriors program and how we educate people and work in the watershed to identify, report and manage the spread of invasive weeds.
  • You’ll learn more about the Truckee River Watershed Council and our programs so you (and your clients!) can help protect, enhance and restore the Truckee River watershed that we all know and enjoy.
