Setting a shameful precedent, California State Parks Commissioners voted 5-0 in favor of extending a golf course into Washoe Meadows State Park. In order to make the Lake Tahoe Golf Course development legally possible, the Commissioners downgraded Washoe Meadows from a state park to a recreation area. Learn more…

The 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.

The Washoe Meadows Community needs your help.

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, orĀ  another alternative which would reconfigure the golf course where it is now; on the east side of the upper Truckee River. This solution will allow river restoration and help meet goals to improve water quality in Lake Tahoe, without sacrificing the ecological, recreational, and cultural values of Washoe Meadows State Park.
