What’s Happening

The Ski with a Ranger Program, a partnership between the Heavenly Mountain Resort and the USDA Forest Service, is looking for volunteers to lead guided tours over the snow at the Heavenly ski resort one day a week.

The tours focus on the National Forest System, the partnership and the natural and cultural history of the Lake Tahoe Basin. For more information, contact Allie Wenzl, Ski with a Ranger coordinator, at (530) 541-5227.

The Community Care Center of Tahoe, the Angora fire relief organization in the former Mikasa building at the “Y,” is seeking volunteers.

Everyone is invited to come on down and take a look at how the community has pulled together. Someday you may need to receive this kind of aid, so it is important to help when you can.

Volunteers can sign up at the center for the hours they can work. Days and hours volunteers are needed this week are Friday and Saturday from noon to 2 p.m. and from 2 to 4 p.m. Also, someone is needed Nov. 14 through Nov. 21. The center will be open fewer hours the rest of November, which will make scheduling volunteers easier.

To volunteer and for more information, call Moksha Lea at (530) 416-4453.
