There is now officially a One Truckee River story map!
This story map is an interactive web page that shares river-related information about amenities, recreation, safety, and plants/wildlife in a visually appealing way. We have interactive maps with icons and pictures to provide users a great grasp on the many qualities the Truckee River has to share!
And it’s all thanks to OTR’s (former) AmeriCorps member, Emily Ulrich:
Emily began her AmeriCorps period with us by going out along the Truckee River stretch in Reno and Sparks and mapping every single trash can, restroom, picnic table and crack in the sidewalk. She then took all that information and put it into a map (now shown as part of our story map). From there, Emily worked with the Truckee River Guide‘s Kelsey Fitzgerald to input popular plant and animal species found in and along the river.
Overall, the story map is a visually stunning way to share important information about the Truckee River. Thanks, Emily, for doing such a great job in putting everything together!
