Volunteers are needed to help complete projects throughout the East and West Carson Watersheds including plantings, stream bank stabilization, invasive weed removal, protective tree wrapping, and storm drain stenciling. All are welcome to attend. No experience is necessary.

Participants gather 9 a.m. at the Markleeville Library Park, 270 Laramie St., for registration and introductions. Groups then carpool to their restoration project locations.
