Sierra Club meets Thursday

Provided to the Tribune

The Tahoe Area Sierra Club will have its monthly meeting Thursday at 6:30 p.m.

You probably live not too far from one of the 63 streams flowing into Lake Tahoe. How healthy is the stream closest to you? Is it contributing to or detracting from Tahoe’s clarity? How can you find out? What can you do to make your stream cleaner? To answer these and other questions you have, come be part of a power point presentation and discussion with Megan Suarez, the Watersheds Program Coordinator for the Sierra Nevada Alliance. Chairwoman Patricia Hickson attended the Sierra Club National Summit last weekend in San Francisco. Hundreds of club members from around the world got together to identify what strategies we need to adopt in these difficult times in order to save our planet. Hickson will report on what our fellow club members have come up with so far.

The meeting goes until 9 p.m., and will be at the Fire Station on Elks Point Road in Nevada.

Turn west at the stoplight at the Round Hill Shopping Center to find the first station

Parking at the fire station is limited, so you may need to proceed a few yards past the Fire House, turn left, and park along Dorla Court.

Refreshments will be ready by 6:20 p.m.
