Keep Truckee Green provides easy ways to help clean up litter and trash. Join the Truckee Litter Corps on the first Saturday of each month for a group clean-up at a designated location. You’ll get a TLC t-shirt and the opportunity to meet Truckee locals doing good. Another way to help is by participating in the Grab a Bag Program at local participating businesses. They provide the pick-up supplies for litter clean-up anytime, anywhere! Return your bag of litter for prizes and discounts.
Help the Truckee Trails Foundation build, maintain, and advocate for a world-class network of trails and bikeways for health, sustainability, and prosperity. Don a helmet, gloves, and hardhat and join them for a trail work day!
Get your science on and find out how you can protect our watershed with the Truckee River Watershed Council. Attend an informal, virtual River Talk to learn about the Truckee River Watershed, meet other river-lovers, and hear about the Watershed Council’s work; pull invasive plants with the Weed Warriors; Adopt-A-Stream and get the training to become a watershed scientist, practicing biology or chemistry in the field; or attended the annual Truckee River Day.
Roll up your sleeves and put in a day of dirt work building trails with the Truckee Donner Land Trust. They offer volunteer trail days throughout the summer, June - October, to repair existing trails or complete new sections. They provide the tools, all you need to do is show up with water and snacks!
Can make a volunteer trail day? You can still help by reporting trail conditions on their website. Use the form on their Explore page to share what you find - down trees, muddy trail, backed up drains, etc.
Anyone can volunteer as a citizen scientist, it’s as easy as downloading an app! Get the Citizen Science Tahoe app on your phone and use it to share observations, photos, and comments of Lake Tahoe when you’re at the beach, on the water, or on the mountain. This helps researchers better understand conditions around the lake, so if you see it, share it!
