17th annual Truckee River Day…October 14th 2012.
Sorry for the absence, but I just got back from my summer job in Montana.
We are looking for volunteers for the upcoming Truckee River Day on October, 14th 2012. We have two projects we are doing this year, one on the Little Truckee, and one on Lower Prosser Creek.
Here’s the break down of the projects…
Trout Unlimited will be running two project sites this year and they both need your help! TU will be running trail maintenance and reconstruction work on the Little Truckee River, while planting new mature willows along the streambank and re-seeding impacted areas in the meadow with native grasses. We will also be adding spawning gravels to Lower Prosser Creek – to enhance the wild trout reproduction in this stretch of river – which is impacted by Prosser Creek Dam. Both projects run from around 10am-1pm.
If you recreate in the Truckee area, this is your chance to give a little sweat equity back to a river that has given you so much over the years. For more information or to participate in this year’s restoration projects, please register at http://www.truckeeriverwc.org/events-a-programs/calendar/event-subscribe/191-truckee-river-day and chose “Little Truckee River Restoration.” All you need to do is sign up and details will be sent directly to you before the event. The deadline for registration is Friday, October 5th.
Thanks for all you do for the watershed, we hope to see you out there with us Sunday morning!
Thank you for your support and look forward to seeing you on Truckee River Day!…Matt
