Forest Service hosts open house

Patrick McCartney

The excitement over last summer’s Lake Tahoe Presidential Forum may have quieted down, but events set into motion by President Clinton’s executive order have continued behind the scenes.

On Monday, the U.S. Forest Service’s Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit will host an open house, where Forest Supervisor Juan Palma will review its programs and activities planned for this year.

Palma will explain the Forest Service’s base programs for this year’s work season, as well as bring the public up to date on the unit’s efforts to fulfill its presidential commitments. Clinton committed $26 million in new spending in the basin in the first two years, and created organizations that will coordinate federal, state and local activities to restore the basin’s beleaguered environment.

The Program Status Open House will be held in Smokey’s Den at the Forest Service headquarters in South Lake Tahoe, located at 870 Emerald Bay Road. The open house will begin at 9 a.m. and end at noon.
