City of Reno welcomes Source to Sea adventurers
Reno City Councilmember Jenny Brekhus will host a lunch for participants of the 2017 Truckee River Source to Sea Paddling and Environmental Learning Adventure on Thursday, June 8, 2017 at 1 p.m. Participants will take a break at Wingfield Park during their 150-mile journey from South Lake Tahoe to Pyramid Lake.
The event is in coordination with Rivers for Change, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit group made up of river enthusiasts dedicated to changing the way people think about and interact with water.
“I commend this group for their efforts to raise awareness about the Truckee River and its impact on our community,” Reno City Councilmember Jenny Brekhus said.
The Reno Fire Department will be working with organizers to promote safety during the event, which is restricted to participants with professional-level experience.
“Our recommendation is still for the general public to stay out of the river,” Reno Fire Chief Dave Cochran said.
