Basin research to be shared with public

Andy Bourelle

The public is invited to attend a two-day Lake Tahoe Basin Research Symposium scheduled for Oct. 20 and 21.

Leading researchers and government agencies will gather at the North Tahoe Conference Center in Kings Beach to share information about current research and to identify opportunities to integrate research activities in the future.

Sponsored by the University of California, Davis; The University of Nevada, Reno; U.S. Environmental Protection Agency; U.S. Geological Survey; U.S. Forest Service and Tahoe Regional Planning Agency, the symposium is expected to give participants a better understanding of how research institutions and government agencies can set a new direction for greater collaboration and coordination of future research activities.

“We encourage people to come if they have the time, interest and opportunity, even if just for parts of it,” said Jane Freeman, Lake Tahoe Basin coordinator for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. “The community needs to be brought into this whole picture.”

The symposium will run from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days. There is no cost for attending.
