Join us on Saturday, June 18th from 10am-1pm at Loney Meadow to kick off the meadow wildflower season. SYRCL will host a meadow open house to showcase the new Loney Meadow Interpretive Trail signs and to highlight the restoration and monitoring work ongoing at Loney Meadow.
Since 2011, SYRCL has worked in partnership with the Tahoe National Forest to restore Loney Meadow by removing conifers from meadow edges within aspen stands and restoring Texas Creek. The goal of these restoration actions is to improve overall meadow health, including raising groundwater levels by reducing channel erosion rates, improving aspen health, improving native plant diversity, and sequestering more carbon.
New signs were designed in partnership with the Tahoe National Forest and the Sierra Nevada Conservancy, with the help of Tallac Applied Ecology & Design and local artist Jennifer Rain Crosby.
Schedule of the day’s events:
10 am – Introductions, light refreshments, and remarks (at Loney Meadow trailhead)
10:30 am – 1 pm – Trail Open House: walk the 1.5 loop trail, enjoy the new signs and learn about the SYRCL and USFS collaboration at Loney Meadow.
