Upcoming Events:
  • May 31, 2018: [Spring Lecture Series] Managing Forests for Fire and Drought with Malcom North, forest ecologist with the Forest Service Pacific Southwest Research Station. Remote sensing technology has detected what could be a win for both spotted owls and forestry management. In the Tahoe Basin, owl PACs (protective activity centers) can increase fire severity and spread rate, as well as be moisture stressed due to high tree densities. This research suggests ways of treating these conditions and making Tahoe Basin forests more resilient to the increasing frequency and severity of climate change stress. A $5 suggested donation is collected at the entrance, no-host bar at 5:30 p.m. with the presentation starting at 6:00 p.m. Register here!
