TAHOE/TRUCKEE, Calif. and#8212; Join hundreds of Tahoe Basin community members as we help improve forest health at the League to Save Lake Tahoe’s 14th annual Tahoe Forest Stewardship Day Saturday, Sept. 10, 9 a.m.-2 p.m., Incline Village., Nev. The League welcomes volunteers of all ages and abilities.

This yearand#8217;s Stewardship Day partners with the Incline Village General Improvement District, and will focus on fuels reduction, native vegetation rehabilitation, trail restoration, stream restoration, biomass clean-up, and educational outreach. The event will also include a volunteer appreciation lunch with a guest speaker.

For more than a decade, Stewardship Day has provided hundreds of Lake Tahoe volunteers the opportunity to restore public lands and discover how forest restoration can complement fire risk reduction. Volunteers band together under the leadership of the League on one day with a unified goal: to reverse the degradation of Lake Tahoe.

Previous Stewardship Day events have helped restore the Angora Fire Area, the Heavenly Gondola area, Meekand#8217;s Creek Meadow, North Tahoe Regional Park, Skylandia Park and Sugar Pine Point State Park.

All volunteers should wear sturdy shoes and long pants, and bring a water bottle and snack. Tools are provided, but volunteers who already have work gloves, hardhats, rakes, hand-saws, loppers, and shovels are encouraged to bring them (no axes or chain-saws, please).

For more information or to sign-up, contact Flavia Sordelet at 530-541-5388 or events@keeptahoeblue.org. Registration is required.

All interested community members are welcome. Volunteers will meet for orientation at 8:30 a.m. at the Village Green Park, 960 Lakeshore Blvd., Incline Village.
