SWEP Program and Project News

As the season changes we are shifting gears from fall to winter programs.  As we say goodbye to fall we would like to share a few highlights…
  • Over 30 outdoor field days with students
  • 300 student-made Lahontan Cutthroat Trout Fish Art displayed in schools and around our community to promote Truckee River Day.
  • Over 150 Lahontan Cutthroat Trout fry released at Truckee River Fair Day.
  • Over 700 Sugar Pine Trees planted in our region by local students.
  • 14 “Wonders of Watersheds” service projects completed by Kings Beach Elementary students.
  • 15 nature exploration hikes with Creekside Cooperative Charter students.
  • 4 days, 3 nights, 28 high school students participated in first annual Tahoe Basin Watershed Education Summit at Blackwood Canyon collecting critical data for USFS.
  • Envirolution Club presented the Trashion Show for 3rd consecutive year on main stage at Bioneers Conference.

Thank you to all of the amazing students, teachers, parents, partners and supporters for making these programs (and highlights) possible.  Keep an eye out for more exciting, hands-on SWEP programs this winter….
