Volunteers needed to monitor water

Volunteers are need for the 9th annual Water Quality Snapshot Day on May 16.
This citizen-based environmental effort is designed to take a “snapshot” at one moment in time of the water quality throughout the Lake Tahoe and Truckee River watershed.
It is sponsored by the Nevada Division of Environmental Protection, UC Cooperative Extension, Tahoe Regional Planning Agency, Incline Village General Improvement District and the Truckee River Watershed Council.
South Shore volunteers meet at Lake Tahoe Community College at 8:30am to get their team and stream assignments; finishing up at noon with a free group lunch. South Shore team leader training is May 5 at LTCC, Room G-2B from 4:30-7pm.
To sign up as a leader or volunteer, call Jenny Francis at (530) 541-3495.
