New LTCC class aims to provide job skills to help protect Lake Tahoe

Tribune staff report

The League to Save Lake Tahoe and Lake Tahoe Community College (LTCC) are offering a new course called, “Water Quality Monitoring of Streams and Lakes,” to provide students skills applicable for entry level field, environment and science technician job duties with Tahoe resource agencies.

The course, which takes place during LTCC’s upcoming spring semester, will provide an introduction to proper field sampling methods for streams and lakes that address a multitude of issues relevant to Lake Tahoe as well as how to use the data collected to guide natural resource management decisions. At the conclusion of the class, students may continue building their skills by applying for special internship placements with Tahoe organizations, including the League to Save Lake Tahoe.
