Markleeville Creek Day
A huge thank you to the 49 volunteers who volunteered for Markleeville Creek Day 2021 on September 18! Check out the Creek Day 2021 Outcomes.
Markleeville Creek Day is a community-wide, volunteer-based watershed restoration event that Alpine Watershed Group has been coordinating since 2001. This important event helps us tackle environmental health projects such as installing willow stakes, removing trash, pulling invasive weeds, addressing erosion issues, wrapping aspens, and other eco-friendly projects.
Markleeville Creek Day involves dozens of volunteers dividing and conquering on a handful of projects, each with a skilled site leader with appropriate tools and supplies. And what fun would a long day of hard work be without a celebration and food afterwards!
Thank you to the Alpine County Chamber of Commerce, Alpine County Tobacco Control Program, Bently Heritage, Carson Water Subconservancy District, Lumos & Associates, Resource Concepts, Inc., Starbucks Roasting Plant, Terraphase Engineering, Trout Unlimited Sagebrush Chapter, and Wildscape Engineering for helping to sponsor Markleeville Creek Day 2021.
