Environmental review process topic of lecture offered tonight at college
The Upper Truckee River Watershed Stewardship Group is hosting a lecture on the environmental review process from 6:30 to 8 p.m. today.
The National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) are two major laws that govern the planning, implementation and public disclosure process for restoration and development projects. The presentation will cover the basics of these two laws, highlight the ways that the public can participate in the environmental review process and illuminate the ways that environmental decisions are made.
The presentation will take place at Lake Tahoe Community College, Room A-251, and is part of a monthly series of lectures hosted by the Upper Truckee River Watershed Stewardship Group.
The Upper Truckee River Watershed Stewardship Group is a community-based forum for environmental and watershed education. Its aim is to increase volunteer participation and leadership in watershed issues.
