Hundreds expected for Truckee River Day Sunday

Volunteers are still welcome at this Sunday’s 12th annual Truckee River Day.

Started with about 400 people in 1996, the annual event features a clean-up and restoration effort on the Truckee River and its tributaries.

In recent years, the Truckee River Watershed Council has overseen Truckee River Day, said the council’s Beth Christman.

This year, Christman said roughly 450 people have preregistered, but more can participate.

Sunday’s projects will include reseeding areas along the local river and streams, mulching, creating fish habitat on Prosser Creek below the dam, and decommissioning old roads that have been causing erosion, Christman said.

Local students will also be giving this year’s Truckee River Day a more artistic edge ” installing painted trout silhouettes along Trout Creek in downtown Truckee, Christman said.
