The student volunteers will perform free energy audits and weatherizations of homes and buildings in Truckee. They will also teach energy conservation lessons in schools and run a workshop for community members about energy use and energy efficiency. The energy workshop and weatherization for Tuesday, March 27, 3-6 p.m. at High Fives Nonprofit Foundation, 10775 Pioneer Trail, Truckee has been canceled.
