See You on July 13 — in Person at Last!
At the next Alpine County Fish and Game Commission meeting, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) will be presenting a proposal to build a barrier on the East Fork Carson River for Lahontan Cutthroat Trout (LCT) restoration. This is an opportunity for our local community to ask questions and to collaborate with agency staff as they work toward meeting the updated recovery objectives for the species in the Carson River watershed. Due to existing COVID-19 policies for some agencies, this meeting must be held outdoors. It will be an informal conversation; there will be no formal presentation, so attendees should watch the pre-recorded presentations linked to below.
Lahontan Cutthroat Trout Recovery in the Carson River Watershed
at the Alpine County Fish and Game Commission Meeting
Tuesday, July 13, 1:30 p.m. (end time uncertain)
Markleeville Library Lawn Area
IMPORTANT: Bring a chair, a water bottle, and sun protection.
AWG's July Watershed Group Meeting will directly follow this meeting!
Given that this important meeting falls on AWG's July meeting date, and there is the opportunity to once more meet in person, AWG's July meeting will be an informal gathering directly following the USFWS presentation. We plan to walk to Markleeville Creek at Heritage Park to take a look at Caltrans' progress on replacing the Markleeville Bridge on Highway 89, and we will talk about the future Markleeville Creek Restoration Project. We'll have lemonade and cookies. We are so excited to see everyone again!
