Markleeville Creek Day
September 21 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
MARKLEEVILLE, CA – Alpine Watershed Group, in partnership with the Great Sierra River Cleanup, will be hosting its 20th annual Markleeville Creek Day on Saturday, September 21, 2019. This event allows for the completion of important restoration work through several projects across the Carson River watershed. Volunteers will have the opportunity to plant willows in Hope Valley, remediate headcuts in Grover Hot Springs State Park, remove invasive and noxious weeds from meadows and riparian zones, or cleanup roads as part of the Adopt-AHighway 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.
Participants should arrive at the Alpine County Library in Markleeville at 9 a.m. for registration and introductions. At 9:30 a.m. volunteers will carpool to their selected project site. Volunteers are asked to bring reusable water bottles (we will provide water re-fill stations) and sun protection, and to wear long sleeves, long pants, and close-toed shoes. The workday will wrap up at 1:00 p.m., and a complimentary taco bar will be provided for volunteers at the library park.
