Truckee & Tahoe Restoration Projects Tour
August 4, 2022 - August 5, 2022$225 – $275
The Western Chapter of the IECA is pleased to announce the first in-person post-pandemic educational event which will take place on August 4th & 5th, 2022. We will return to the beautiful northern Sierra Nevada, including the Martis Valley in Truckee and the Upper Truckee Marsh in South Lake Tahoe. Various agency spokespersons and additional experts from the private sector will showcase these successful restoration, recreation, and erosion control projects that highlight our mutual disciplines and interests. We will make six stops at four different projects and discuss appropriate BMPs, flood analysis, invasive weeds, rare plants and protected species, biotechnical engineering, construction challenges, archaeological constraints and considerations, safety issues, wildfire, and the nuances of public works projects. Learn from the best and the smartest in the business.
