To participate in this year’s festivities please register online. Registration is required and is open one month before Truckee River Day.
Through the registration process, you will be able to let us know your preference for type of activity and location and whether or not you are part of group. We will do our best to meet your preferences, but ask you to be flexible.
In the week before Truckee River Day, we will contact you and tell you about your project – the work you will be doing, where you will meet, and what you need to wear and bring.
Truckee River Day started in 1996. 400 volunteers came to lend a hand and completed 10 projects. Since that first year thousands of volunteers have participated in dozens of restoration projects. We look forward to seeing you this year.
