The Snow Creek Restoration is a Stream Environment Zone (Wetlands) restoration project. The project is located in Tahoe Vista. SWEP is engaging 5th Grade Students at Glenshire Elementary school in hands on science education through field studies at the project site, with a focus on wetlands and watershed-based education. SWEP developed and implemented activities for a visit to the project site. Activities included water quality monitoring, vegetation and willow monitoring, and photo monitoring. The students at Glenshire Elementary school are taking part in creating interpretive signs for the project sight. Students will return to the project site, with a focus on a follow-up to construction activities. At the completion of the restoration there will be a community outreach day where community members can come learn about the restoration. Date still to be determined.
