One Truckee River Month, River History
Can you even believe it? We have officially passed the halfway point for One Truckee River Month!

Conservation, One Truckee River Month, River-Friendly Landscaping
In honor of Arbor Day on April 26, we got to sit down with American Arborists and local tree expert Rod Haulenbeek to chat tree care and the Truckee River! Listen to our radio interview here When we need tree care, many people search for a landscaper instead of a trained and certified tree specialist. The talk is about the 6 main benefits of trees, and why they are such a great asset. This is an Arbor Day Special airing for the purpose of increasing awareness about the importance of trees and arborists. More at: PruneWithCare.com.

One River, One Truckee River Month
Surprise, it's March! You know what that means? One Truckee River Month is only two months away! One Truckee River Month (OTRM) is an opportunity to celebrate the Truckee River watershed with the entire community. And when we say celebrate, we mean a variety of ways. We're talking riverside yoga and bike rides, walking tours, river-inspired art, composting and fly fishing lessons.... We could really go on for ages. The good news for you: We're still looking for businesses to participate! There are 31 different days and an infinite amount of ways your business can participate in this river-wide event this May. Sparkle Yoga hosted two ~free~ yoga sessions at Lunford Park, right next to the Truckee River, in 2018. Okay, I'm listening... The first ever One Truckee River Month…
