Middle Truckee River Watershed Forest Partnership

The Middle Truckee River Watershed Forest Partnership is a collaborative initiative with the goal of enhancing the resilience of forest ecosystems in the Sierraville and Truckee districts of the Tahoe National Forest, situated within the Middle Truckee River watershed. This partnership brings together various stakeholders including government agencies, non-profit organizations, and private landowners to collectively address the challenges posed by deteriorating forest health.

A key objective of the partnership involves identifying and executing strategic forest restoration and fuel reduction projects on Forest Service lands encompassing or adjacent to the Middle Truckee River watershed. These endeavors will mitigate the risks of wildfire, enhance ecosystem health, and safeguard the invaluable water resources of the region. The partnership fosters a collaborative approach, increasing efficiency and effectiveness in the pursuit of mutual forest management goals.
