Washoe Meadows State Park is home to forests, meadows, abundant wildlife, rare plants and fens. Fens are unique wetlands that provide forage for animals and act as natural filtration systems. The park also offers many recreational opportunities to outdoor enthusiasts. State Park’s mission is to preserve biological diversity, protect cultural and natural resources, and create opportunities for high quality outdoor recreation.

Washoe Meadows Community was formed in 2006 when California State Parks proposed a plan to restore the Upper Truckee River and move golf course holes into the park. Setting a shameful precedent, California State Parks Commissioners voted 5-0 to downgrade Washoe Meadows from a state park to a recreation area. Learn more…

Washoe Meadows Community believes the river can be restored, the park can be preserved, and golf can continue in the state recreation area on the east side of the river.

Washoe Meadows Community needs your help.

TAKE ACTION
Write to the decision makers. Attend the hearings. Tell state officials that you believe Washoe Meadows State Park and all state parks should be protected, not developed. Insist that they approve Alternative 3 in the Washoe Meadows EIS, or  another alternative which would reconfigure the golf course where it is now; on the east side of the Upper Truckee River. River restoration can help meet goals to improve water quality in Lake Tahoe. However, the ecological, recreational, and cultural values of the Park should not be held hostage to river restoration.
