Special Report on Invasive Species in Local Waters on Sept. 26 at REI Reno
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: September 12, 2012
Reno, NV – The Tahoe Resource Conservation District is calling all boaters, anglers, paddlers, swimmers and water-lovers! Join us on September 26 at 6:30pm at REI Reno, 2225 Harvard Way, Reno NV to learn how and why to prevent the spread of aquatic invasive species. Asian clams, Zebra & Quagga mussels and invasive weeds like Eurasian water milfoil are just a few of the plants and critters that currently threaten your local waters.
These pests could cost millions to the local economy and irreparably damage our environment, affecting everyone in the region. The Tahoe Resource Conservation District (Tahoe RCD) works with dozens of partner organizations and agencies to protect Lake Tahoe and the Truckee River watershed by implementing programs aimed to prevent and control the spread of aquatic invasive species. The Tahoe RCD will share information about current prevention programs as well as what boaters can expect in 2013. Staff from Nevada Department of Wildlife will be discussing the NV Watercraft Decal program that will fund invasive species prevention and go into effect on January 1, 2013.
