What is Forest Supervisor Terri Marceron doing?
June 5, 2007
“Like many officials, I have a week filled with meetings,” said Terri Marceron, the U.S. Forest Service’s Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit’s Forest Supervisor.
This week, Marceron will be going through an internal Forest Service review from the regional office in Vallejo. The review will look at forest fuels reduction programs in the basin, including the Quail and Ward projects, in regards to Forest Service policies.
Marceron will also be continuing work on Southern Nevada Public Land Management Act Round 8 proposals. The proposals will be submitted to SNPLMA executives for approval on June 26.
The package would secure $45 million from federal land sales around Las Vegas for the Environmental Improvement Program in the Lake Tahoe Basin, according to Marceron.
She will also be coordinating with basin agencies to inform the public of the threat quagga mussels pose to the basin’s waters this week.
“Right now we’re working on ensuring when the public comes to our offices we have current information,” said Marceron.
