Help at Markleeville Creek Day

Judy Wickwire | Alpine Watershed Group

Alpine Watershed Group, in partnership with the Great Sierra River Cleanup, will be hosting its 20th annual Markleeville Creek Day on Sept. 21. This event allows for the completion of restoration work through several projects across the Carson River watershed. Volunteers will have the opportunity to plant willows in Hope Valley, remediate head cuts in Grover Hot Springs State Park, remove invasive and noxious weeds from meadows and riparian zones, or cleanup roads as part of the Adopt-A-Highway program. There will also be kid-friendly events, including painting picnic tables in Heritage Park and cleaning up Markleeville Creek. All are welcome to attend. No experience is necessary. The workday will wrap up at 1 p.m.; a complimentary taco bar will be provided for volunteers at the library park. | RSVP [email protected], (530) 694-2327
