If you are interested in the future of Johnson Meadow and the Upper Truckee River we want to hear from you! Please join us!
Johnson Meadow is a spectacular 206-acre property located in the heart of South Lake Tahoe, California along the Upper Truckee River. Once private property used as a dairy during the gold rush and early 1900’s and as seasonal gazing pasture following the meadow was purchased by Tahoe RCD in April 2018. Thanks to funding provided by the California Tahoe Conservancy, California Department of Fish and Wildlife, and Tahoe Fund Johnson Meadow is now public land. The purchase completes public ownership of nearly the entire course of the Upper Truckee River from headwaters to Lake Tahoe providing the opportunity for ecological restoration, recreation, and community enjoyment.
Tahoe RCD is in the early stages of a comprehensive restoration planning effort. We are working with local, regional, and national partners as well as the Tahoe community to ensure a sustainable future for the meadow. Our goals are to restore the meadow to a more natural state to enhance habitat, watershed protection, climate change resilience, and sustainable recreation. We invite you to participate throughout the process!
