Board to Consider Restoring Tahoe Pines Campground

Conservancy staff is seeking $650,000 to restore and protect the natural floodplain and riparian habitat of the 8.5 acre site while providing picnic tables, benches, hiking trails or other compatible amenities.

The former campground along U.S. Highway 50 in Meyers sits on the Upper Truckee River. The area took an environmental beating from vehicles, and frequently flooded. See our
staff recommendation.

2014 Major Project Highlights

Staff will brief the Board on major Conservancy-funded projects moving forward this summer, including the following highlights:
Bijou Erosion Control Project:
The Bijou neighborhood in South Lake Tahoe features one of the six erosion control projects that Conservancy partners are constructing this summer. 
Sawmill II Bike Trail:
The Conservancy supports walkable, bikeable communities, and is actively pursuing that future by investing in El Dorado County's Sawmill II Bike Trail and Lake Tahoe Boulevard Enhancement Projects. 
Upper Truckee River, Reach 5 Project:
U.S. Forest Service restoration crews began the second year of channel construction and vegetation in June on this joint, multi-million dollar project.
Free wood? Yes, the Conservancy's Community Firewood Program offers free permits for up to two cords of wood. Read our press release for more information.
Conservancy Partners with State Parks

The North Tahoe Beach Pavilion will no longer accept new reservations for private events – but it will be free on a first come, first served basis for larger groups.
Land Management Program:  28 Years and Counting

Last year staff inspected nearly 3,000 of the Conservancy's 4,700 properties and addressed almost 100 citizen reports.

This year, the Board will consider authorizing $889,000 for property management, hazard abatement, and restoration activities in 2014/15. For more details, see our staff recommendation.
Staff Proposes Over $1 Million for 2014/15 Forest Improvements 

Healthy forests preserve water quality, enhance wildlife habitat, and provide for public safety and protection of property. 

The Board will consider up to $1,184,711 for forest improvement projects and hazard tree abatement on Conservancy properties in 2014/15.
For more details, see our staff recommendation.
June 22 marked the Conservancy's 5th annual Doggie Day, a great success thanks to our partnership with Lake Tahoe Humane Society, S.P.C.A.
