Staff report

The Tuesday, Feb. 10, Good Morning Truckee will talk about Truckee's state of the environment, with presentations from: Perry Norris, Truckee Donner Land Trust; Lisa Wallace, Truckee River Watershed Council; and Alexis Ollar, Mountain Area Preservation.

All three environmentally based nonprofits work together, and need each other as acquisition, restoration and advocacy are intertwined for success — and all are devoted to quality of life in our community.

Hear how these organizations have changed their focus somewhat as the world around us has changed since they began their work.

The speakers will address how climate change is affecting their work, and share concerns and expectations for the future including:

Optimism — caring community, limited sprawl.

Working with developers for good planning.
