When the River Stops Flowing: Moonshine Ink just published a great piece on the impact of the drought on the Truckee River in California and Nevada.

The Truckee River provides drinking water, agricultural water, and water for river habitat. It’s a complicated set of needs, and Moonshine Ink explains how those needs are met – and what happens when they aren’t.

You can help the Truckee River – and the habitat that relies on it – by coming out for Truckee River Day. Join us for a day of river, meadow and wetland restoration. You will be near streams and meadows, working side-by-side with other volunteers to plant restoration sites with seedlings and willows, remove invasive vegetation, compost and mulch sensitive areas, remove garbage and more. There is still time to register – but hurry!

Truckee River Day – it’s one of the ways we can help the river keep flowing!
