Historic hatchery breaks new ground

Sun staff reports

The UC Davis Tahoe Environmental Research Center invites you Friday to join in celebrating the groundbreaking for the renovation of the historic Tahoe City fish hatchery.

The building was originally constructed in the 1920s and the improved facility will retain the unique character while adding a field lab, SCUBA locker, office, conference space and workroom for researchers and scientists.

Additionally, three acres of wetlands in the Lake Forest area near the hatchery will be restored to filter stormwater and provide habitat for birds and amphibians. And native vegetation will be planted in a garden to demonstrate lake-friendly landscaping and conservation practices.

Celebrate the groundbreaking and offer community input for the renovation of the UC Davis Tahoe City Field Lab (fish hatchery) at 10 a.m. this Friday, July 6 at the lab on the corner of Highway 89 and the west entrance to Lake Forest Road.
