Climate change, ‘loving Truckee to death’ topic of Tuesday meeting

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.

Reality of damaged ecosystems — “loving it to death.”

Good Morning Truckee is a community forum presented by the Truckee Donner Chamber of Commerce to provide timely and relevant information on a variety of topics and create a networking opportunity.

Meetings are open to the public. They are held the second Tuesday of every month at Truckee Tahoe Airport from 7 to 8:30 a.m. Price at the door for general public is $12; Truckee Donner Chamber members pay $10, and it includes continental breakfast and raffle.
