20th annual Tahoe Forest Stewardship Day set for Saturday

Volunteer Erin Chichlowski and Jesse Patterson, deputy director of the League to Save Lake Tahoe and a volunteer, share a laugh while working on the river banks at the the 18th annual Tahoe Forest Stewardship Day.

The League to Save Lake Tahoe will host the 20th annual Tahoe Forest Stewardship Day on Saturday, Sept. 23.

This year’s event will focus on areas damaged by the 2007 Angora Fire. Participants will help protect young trees and restore area trails, according to a press release from The League.

Afterward all volunteers are invited to a celebration featuring lunch by Chimayó, beers by South Lake Brewing Company and live music by Sierra Gypsies. The celebration will take place at South Lake Brewing Company.

All ages are invited to come out and volunteer. The project is a partnership between The League and the U.S. Forest Service Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit. Funding is provided in part through a grant from the USFS El Dorado County Resource Advisory Committee.

“By pitching in, volunteers can make a direct impact in restoring the watershed habitats that surround Lake Tahoe,” states The League in the press release.
