Truckee River Day is set for Oct. 14
Truckee River Day will be on Sunday, Oct. 14.
For the sixth year, the event will include hands-on activities and provide plenty of work for adult and children volunteers. New tasks for this year include “Backyard Trails” projects and some much-needed work in the Martis burn region.
Parents and children will have an opportunity to remove items that other people have left behind in our forests, trails, streams and reservoirs. Parents can teach their children respect for the natural habitat by working to clean areas that have been mistreated.
New activities will be offered from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Granite Flat Campground for kids of all ages. An adventure booklet will offer a guided tour through many aspects of the Truckee River, and how they all depend on each other for a healthy environment.
Children and parents on clean-up work projects are welcome to join the fun after their important tasks are done, and the baby cutthroat trout will find new homes in the Truckee River when children release them at 4 p.m.
For more work project information and to register for a work project, log on to the Web site at geocities.com/trd2001 or call (530) 587-4509.
