  • Truckee River Day
    All day

    It was that first Truckee River Day in 1996 that spawned today’s Truckee River Watershed Council. Since then thousands of nature-lovers have shown up yearly with their gumboots, buckets, shovels and smiles to take on 100s of restoration projects throughout the watershed.

    Work along side your friends—and make new ones—as together we:

    • restore designated sites
    • plant native vegetation
    • mulch sensitive areas
    • repair our mountain home

    Registration is required and is now open. Please register for Truckee River Day HERE.

    • Let us know your project preferences and if you are part of a group. We will do our best to meet your preferences, but ask you to be flexible.
    • The week before Truckee River Day, we will tell you about your project – the work you will be doing, where you will meet, and what you need to wear and bring.

    Join us at the River Fair at Granite Flat to celebrate the Truckee River!Presented in partnership with Sierra Watershed Education Partnerships.

  • Prescription Drug Round-Up
    10:00 AM-2:00 PM

    This fall’s Prescription Drug Round Up is scheduled for Saturday, October 21st.  As you may know, this event is primarily volunteer-driven, and so the Reno Police Department is once again requesting help to make this great event happen!

    The RPD, Sparks Police Department and Washoe County Sheriff’s Office are in need of general public volunteers to serve as “greeters” at the event, as well as pharmacists/pharmacy techs to assist with counting and logging the medications that are turned in. The event will take place from 10 am – 2 pm, and volunteers are needed at their sites at 9:30 am. Please be aware that this event takes place outside in front of the store, so dress accordingly for the weather!

    In order to track which sites are still in need of help, RPD requires that all volunteers RSVP directly to Chelsey at Chelsey will accommodate first choice of location whenever possible, however as some sites fill up she will need to request that you move to another site that still needs help.


    To those of you who have helped with this event in the past – some of you for many years – we cannot thank you enough. Without you, we would not be able to continue meeting this need in our community! Please contact me to RSVP for the event, or with any questions. Feel free to distribute to any friends or colleagues who may be able to help, especially pharmacy personnel.


  • Smart About Water Day
    10:00 AM-2:00 PM

    You are invited to join Truckee Meadows Water Authority (TMWA) for our first-ever Smart About Water Day. As a community leader, we know you have been a part of a great success story about water-resource-management in our region.  We’d like to share this story with the entire community, and report to them annually on all things regarding water.

    Please save the date for this event, which will be from 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. at Lazy 5 Regional Park on October 21st.  The day will provide interactions, insights and presentations to give the public clear, straightforward information regarding the state of water in our region.

    We encourage you to share this with your colleagues and friends who might want to know more about water resource management.  The goal of the event is to ensure conversations about water, both today and in the future, are based on accurate information.

    While planning for the day continues, here is what can be expected:

    • Large Projects in 2018:  What’s in store to ensure long-term service reliability.
    • New Uses for Used Water:  Making the most of what we have with new technologies.
    • Surface to Ground:  Resiliency through aquifer recharge and injection techniques.
    • A Water Report:  Last winter’s records and supply status for this year.
    • The Big Picture:  Meet us at the intersection of growth, planning and our water supply.
    • For Inquisitive Minds:  Hear single-topic presentations in a very casual format.
    • For Exploring Types:  Arbor tours around the beautiful landscape at Lazy 5.
    • For the Kids:  Watershed education by Sierra Nevada Journeys and a kids’ conversation activity table.

    With so many water topics on the table, we’ll have the expertise in the room to answer everyone’s questions about the current and long-term approach to water resource management in our region.
