Developers give to Nature Fund
Developer East West Partners contributed $200,000 to the Tahoe Truckee Community Foundation’s new Nature Fund. The company that built the village at Northstar-at-Tahoe made the donation in order for the organization to continue its efforts conserving the wildlife, lands and waters surrounding the Truckee, North Tahoe and Donner Summit regions.
The Nature Fund’s first award went to the Truckee River Watershed Council last year.
Power company makes donation
Sierra Pacific Power, a subsidiary of Reno-based Sierra Pacific Resources, is donating a 30,000-volt photovoltaic solar power system to Great Basin College in Elko. The system is intended to provide electricity for the community college’s electrical and industrial building scheduled to start construction next month.
