Sierra Club cancels its monthly meeting

Provided to the Tribune

The Sierra Club usually meets the third Thursday of each month at the fire station in Round Hill. The July meeting has been canceled so people can participate in the Public Lands Place-Based Planning workshop from 6 to 9 p.m. today at South Tahoe Middle School on Lake Tahoe Boulevard just east of Al Tahoe Blvd.

More than 80 percent of the land in the Tahoe Basin is in public hands. It’s critical that we let the agencies involved know our thoughts on how that land should be managed. Many forests try to be all things to all people and provide a full range of recreational opportunities. Is that appropriate here, given the ecology of the Tahoe Basin? Are motorized and non-motorized uses compatible, or do we need separate areas for each? Is enforcement sufficient? Do we really want helicopters overhead? Are places like the Mount Rose highway corridor perfect for a world class Nordic Center? These are some of the questions to be asking as you help the agencies put previous input into action plans.

As a reward for your civic participation, the Sierra Club has a great wine-tasting party planned at Stonehenge on Friday.

For tickets contact Joyce Powell at joycerobin1@ or (775) 749-1016.
