Description

Join us as we partner with Keep Truckee Meadows Beautiful for the Annual Great Community Clean-Up! 


We will meet at the Michael S. Thompson trailhead at 7:30 am, more commonly known as the Hunter Creek trail. We will provide tools and gloves and we ask that you come prepared with long pants, layers, and sturdy boots. From the trailhead we will hike 1-3 miles into the Mt. Rose Wilderness and spend the morning removing invasive Musk Thistle Rosettes. Using shovels, we can effectively reduce the population of Musk Thistle. Invasive weeds have many impacts on the native environment. From out-competing for resources to reducing water quality. The work is extremely rewarding and you get to experience some truly amazing country, all in our backyard Wilderness.


As a thank you for all your hard work, Keep Truckee Meadows Beautiful will host an afternoon barbecue for all volunteers!
