Join Truckee Meadows Parks Foundation, in partnership with Keep Truckee Meadows Beautiful's Great Community Clean up, in reestablishing a healthy, native ecosystem in Idlewild Park! This is one of few times ripping trees from the ground is considered a good thing. We will be removing invasive tree species such as Tree of Heaven (Ailanthus altissima) and Siberian Elm (Ulmus pumila) along the Truckee River in Idlewild Park. These species have been identified as significant ecological threats within the Great Basin ecosystem because they have adapted to the native environment, making them extremely difficult to remove. This will be a fun group effort! Don't forget to bring water and wear protective gear such as sunscreen, a hat, and sunglasses.
