Drought impacts on Tahoe-Truckee watershed topic of Tuesday meeting

Staff report

Whether we expect an El Niño or La Niña this winter, there is little doubt that warmer conditions alone will require a more thoughtful approach to water use if we expect to enjoy a healthy Truckee River and surrounding forest lands.

Join Good Morning Truckee for a conversation about the effects drought has on the watershed and our national forest — and what organizations are doing about it.

The Tuesday, Sept. 13 Good Morning Truckee meeting will Joanne Roubique, District Ranger of the U.S. Forest Service, and Lisa Wallace, Executive Director of the Truckee River Watershed Council.

Good Morning Truckee is open to the public and is held the second Tuesday of every month at Truckee Tahoe Airport from 7-8:30 a.m. Ticket price for general public is $12 and Truckee Chamber members $10 and includes a continental breakfast and raffle ticket.

Good Morning Truckee is a community forum to provide timely and relevant information on a variety of topics and create a networking opportunity.
