River Day activities set this weekend

The Truckee-Tahoe community loves its river.

On Sunday, Oct. 10, the community will celebrate the fourth annual Truckee River Day. The theme for this year’s celebration is “Beneath the Surface: the Hidden Life of the Truckee River.”

Events, discussions and activities will focus on aquatic life found in the watershed. Projects include planting, erosion control, stream stabilization, trail building, fish planting and river cleanup, according to event organizers.

This year, festivities include the second annual Truckee River Symposium on Saturday, Oct. 9, titled, “For the love of Fish: A Tale of Frogs, Fish and Unintended Consequences in the Sierra Nevada.”

Renowned experts on Sierra fish and amphibians Dr. Roland Knapp, executive director of the Sierra Nevada Aquatic Research Laboratory near Mammoth Lakes and Eric Gerstung, former biologist with the California Department of Fish and Game, will be the featured speakers.

The symposium begins at 7 p.m. in the Tahoe-Truckee High School auditorium. Admission is free and refreshments will be provided.

For information, call the Truckee River Habitat Restoration Group at 587-4509.
