Truckee River Day will be taking place on Sunday, October 18, 2015. Enjoy a day of river, meadow and wetland restoration! To participate in this year’s festivities please register online. Registration is required and will open approximately one month before Truckee River Day. Go to truckeeriverwc.org to register!
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. Projects start at either 9:00 a.m. or 11:00 a.m. and end between 2:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m.
Truckee River Day started in 1996. 400 volunteers came to lend a hand and completed 10 projects. Since that first year, thousands of volunteers have participated in dozens of restoration projects. We look forward to seeing you this year.
