Annual Markleeville creek day coming up
The Alpine Watershed Group invites everyone to help with its 10th annual Markleeville Creek Day, Sept. 17.
Participants of all ages can work on different project sites in the area performing various tasks including invasive weed removal, vegetative protection and restoration, stream bank stabilization, storm drain stenciling, and the Great Sierra River Cleanup.
Children can help their parents with these projects or spend the day in a supervised youth group learning about watersheds and water quality with many hands-on activities.
The day will wrap up back at 2 p.m. the Alpine County Library Park with an ice cream social, face painting, information and education booths.
The day begins at 10 a.m., Sept. 17. Participants should meet at the Alpine County Library Park located at 270 Laramie St. in Markleeville, Calif. From there, they will be directed to work sites.
Participants are encouraged to sign-up in advance for a specific project. It is recommended that they wear work clothes, gloves, sunscreen and bring a bag lunch, water, and maybe a camera.
