End-of-summer activities spotlighted

Provided to the Tribune

The Sierra Club says, “Don’t give up on summer yet.” There is still a lot to do before the snow flies. We have three great speakers lined up for our Thursday meeting to talk about biking, hiking and Tahoe Basin wildflowers.

The meeting is scheduled from 6:30 to 9 p.m. at the fire station on Elks Point Road in Nevada.

Ty Polastri, president and founder of the Lake Tahoe Bicycle Coalition, will present his vision for building and sustaining a bicycle- friendly Lake Tahoe and how you can help. Isn’t it time we made bicycles a serious summer alternative to cars?

Author and community leader John McCall will show slides of trails from his recently published book “East Tahoe Trails.” Autographed copies of the book will be available at the meeting. They’d make great personalized gifts for your friends this holiday season and $5 per book will be donated to the local Sierra Club.

Lake Tahoe Basin flower expert (and our Tahoe Area Sierra Club chair) Roger Rosenberger finishes up the evening with slides of his favorite flowers and which ones you might still find when you’re out there hiking and biking this time of year.

Parking at the fire station is limited, so you may need to proceed a few yards past the fire house and park along Dorla Court. Refreshments will be ready by 6:20 p.m., so come early.
