RRF Partners with One Truckee River
5.3.17

ONE MISSION. ON COMMUNITY. ONE TRUCKEE RIVER.

The Reno River Festival is an annual, free community event in the heart of downtown Reno. In 2017, for the first time ever, festival goers are being encouraged to give back to help the future health and well-being of our Truckee River. As the public enters Wingfield Park Saturday, May 13th and Sunday, May 14th, they will be asked to donate $1. The proceeds will directly benefit the growth and education of the One Truckee River Project as well as the expansion and future of the Reno River Festival. Guests who donate $1 will receive a commemorative One Truckee River/Reno River Festival wristband. Donors will also receive a discount on Reno River Festival apparel. Guests can donate as much as they choose.

THE CAUSE

The One Truckee River Management Plan will manage, protect, and provide stewardship for the Truckee River across all jurisdictional boundaries. It is a collaboration of KTMB, Nevada Land Trust, and many other public and private stakeholders working together to realize a Truckee River that flows clear and clean – where natural ecology, cultural resources, and wildlife are sustained, and where residents and visitors are connected to unparalleled opportunities for recreation and regeneration.


Some of One Truckee River’s partners include: Nevada Division of Environmental Protection, Truckee Meadows Water Authority, City of Reno, City of Sparks, Washoe County, The Nature Conservancy, Reno-Sparks Indian Colony, National Park Service, Community Foundation of Western Nevada, Sierra Nevada Journeys, and many more.

YOUR OPINION MATTERS

Change our community for the better by taking the One Truckee River Community Watershed Survey. The survey is devised to better understand what our river means to you and what you enjoy to do in and along the Truckee. Upon completion of this survey on May 3rd, One Truckee River will work with the University of Nevada, Reno to analyze the results, and discover knowledge gaps in the community regarding the watershed. From these results, One Truckee River will develop a Truckee River Watershed Education Plan to provide learning opportunities for adults and children alike.

VOLUNTEER

Ever wonder who helps keep the Truckee River, shared parks, and open spaces clean? Each Spring, before the Reno River Festival, Keep Truckee Meadows Beautiful (KTMB) recruits more than 800 volunteers from the Reno, Sparks and Washoe County area to join the Great Community Cleanup.  This Saturday, May 6th, these volunteers will spend the morning making their way down the Truckee River collecting trash & debris to ensure that visitors leave with a positive experience and perception of our great city and it’s unique downtown natural resource.
