Volunteer for the 13th annual Tahoe Forest Stewardship Day

Join hundreds of Tahoe Basin residents and visitors to improve forest health at the League to Save Lake Tahoe’s 13th annual Tahoe Forest Stewardship Day on Sept. 11 at North Tahoe Regional Park near Tahoe Vista. The league welcomes volunteers of all ages and abilities.

This year’s Tahoe Forest Stewardship Day will focus on fuels reduction, native vegetation rehabilitation, trail restoration, stream restoration, biomass clean-up and educational outreach. The event will also include a volunteer appreciation lunch for all participants with a special guest speaker.

For more than decade, Tahoe Forest Stewardship Day has provided hundreds of local volunteers the opportunity to restore public lands and discover how forest ecosystem restoration can complement fire risk reduction.

This community event is possible through collaborative efforts with public land management entities including the U.S. Forest Service, California State Parks and other conservation organizations in the Tahoe Basin. Previous Stewardship Day events have helped restore Meek’s Creek Meadow, Sylandia Park, Sugar Pine Point State Park and the Angora fire area.

All volunteers should wear sturdy shoes and long pants, and bring a water bottle and snack. Tools are provided, but volunteers who already have work gloves, hardhats, rakes, hand saw, and shovels are encouraged to bring them (no axes or chain-saws). For more information or to sign-up, contact Flavia Sordelet with the League to Save Lake Tahoe at 530-541-5388 or e-mail events@keeptahoeblue.org. Registration is required.
