League to host tour of Cookhouse Meadow

The League to Save Lake Tahoe will host a free, public walking tour of Cookhouse Meadow on Wednesday.

Cookhouse Meadow, an area in the Upper Truckee River Watershed, once was badly damaged by grazing, highway construction and flooding, according to a statement from the League.

Through extensive restoration efforts, Cookhouse Meadow has been restored and once again is functioning as a healthy wetland.

The walking tour will provide an opportunity for the public to learn about the importance of wetland environments and understand how they function. A representative of the U.S. Forest Service will guide the tour.

The tour is expected to last from 4 to 6 p.m. Participants will leave from the League to Save Lake Tahoe office, 955 Emerald Bay Road, at 3:30 p.m.

Carpooling from the League to Save Lake Tahoe is encouraged, as transportation will not be provided.

To reserve a spot, contact Sarah Curtis at (530) 541-5388 or sarah@keeptahoeblue.org.
