We Reached our 100,000th Tree Planted
 
During the month of October, we conducted 13 plantings, engaged 437 volunteers and planted over 4,500 sugar pine seedlings in the Lake Tahoe region. You will find these baby trees near Tahoe Vista, Tahoe City and Tahoe Donner neighborhoods, along the bike path at Tunnel Creek, near Lake Ella at Waddle Ranch, in the Little Valley fire scar and next to North Tahoe Middle School. 

We would like to thank the many volunteers, partners and sponsors who make our plantings a success. Your support is crucial to supporting our mission! 

In November, we will have two more plantings, as long as the snow storm this weekend does not foil our plans. 

Talking about snow, Stories in the Snow is an exciting new citizen science project, based right here in the Lake Tahoe Basin and Truckee River Watershed. 

Using little more than smartphone technology, everyday people like you and I - including students - become citizen scientists, participating in real snow science research simply by capturing beautiful images of fresh snowflakes. These images are shared through the Citizen Science Tahoe mobile app.

California forests are dying — they need better care
