The Town collaborates with local organizations to advance restoration efforts in the Truckee River Watershed. Recently, Trout Unlimited provided over 1,000 feet of new fish habitat by installing rock weirs (structures placed in waterways to prevent erosion), planting native riparian vegetation to restore the floodplain, and decommissioning roads.
Another partner, the Truckee River Watershed Council, has completed restoration of 15 acres of the Truckee Meadows wetlands and a four-acre meadow habitat at the Town-owned McIver Dairy property.
What you can do:Be mindful to stay on existing trails to avoid disturbing sensitive habitat restoration areas. Pay attention to trail signage in areas like the McIver Dairy sled hill to understand what areas are off limits to help protect the wetland.
