Celebrate Stewardship Day Aug. 29

Tribune Staff Report

Join hundreds of Lake Tahoe citizens and the League to Save Lake Tahoe Aug. 29 as they work in teams to improve forest health.

Health of the national forest behind Tahoe City will be improved by hand-thinning small suppressed trees in overly dense stands, improving soil damaged by tractor skid trails, and hand-piling ground fuels to reduce the risk of catastrophic forest fire.

There will be activities to match all age levels and physical abilities. Volunteers age 10 and over are welcome. The only requirement for participation is that volunteers enjoy spending time in the forest.

Learn about forest management issues in national forests, watersheds, and the role of fire in a forest ecosystem.

Tahoe Forest Stewardship Day promises:

— An educational day, learning about Tahoe’s forests with actual field experience.

— A rewarding day, helping improve the health of the forests.

— A fun and exciting day, making new friends in the peaceful surroundings of the woods.

Meeting location is Tahoe City Public Utility District, 221 Fairview Drive, Tahoe City. Activities will be from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Bring sturdy shoes, work gloves, protective eyewear, hard hat, water and a sack lunch. Hard hats and work gloves are available for those who don’t have their own.

For details, contact Rich Kentz, coordinator, at (530) 546-5410.
