Seasonal closure at Upper Truckee Marsh

SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. – Dogs will not be allowed in the Upper Truckee Marsh from May 1 to July 31 to keep them out of sensitive wildlife areas during breeding season.

The Upper Truckee Marsh provides critical breeding habitat, including that for special status and threatened and endangered species, according to the California Tahoe Conservancy.

The seasonal dog prohibition will be enforced by the El Dorado County Sheriff and Animal Services. Compliance will also be monitored by Conservancy staff. Beginning August 1 dogs will be permitted access to the Upper Truckee Marsh property, provided they are on leash.

The Conservancy-owned Cove East property, west of the river, remains open for year-round, leashed dog access.
