Who We Work With
We partner with the Sierra Watershed Education
Partnership (SWEP), Tahoe Institute of Natural Science (TINS), US Forest
Service, Tahoe Resource Conservation District and other groups to organize
Student Plantings for local school children.
Every year, we host over 500 students on outdoor fieldtrips to teach them about forest health and plant thousands of trees in and around the Tahoe Basin.
Our educational offerings for interested life long
hikes at Van Sickle Bi-State Park
presentations to citizen groups such as Soroptomist International, Sierra
Club, Rotary Club, and the Senior Center
are present at many events such as Earth Day, Autumn Fest, Tahoe Forest Stewardship
Day, and environmental awareness days held by local ski resorts.
We also work with interested college students and have
mentored independent studies, internships, and research partnerships.
