Snapshot Day 2021

Great Basin Outdoor School is now hosting the Lower Truckee portion of the Tahoe-Truckee Snapshot Day!

Join us at Snapshot Day 2021, a citizen science water quality monitoring event, intended to get the community educated & involved in their watershed.


This is a watershed-wide event, with volunteers of all ages taking samples in water bodies throughout the greater Tahoe-Truckee Watershed, from South Lake Tahoe to Reno! This provides our agencies with a "snapshot" in time of water quality in the entire watershed.


Great Basin Outdoor School will be hosting the Lower Truckee River portion, which takes place in tributaries from Galena Creek to McCarran Ranch.


The Lower Truckee Snapshot Day will take place from:

 9 am to 12 pm on May 15th, 2021.

We are recruiting friends and families to sample at a site or two at this event. Each group will be led by a trained Team Leader, one of our Great Basin Outdoor School employees. Spots will be limited, so if you have a group that is interested, please register your group below, or contact: 

**Please note, registering does not guarantee participation**

For everyone's safety, attendees & staff will be required to have their temperature checked on arrival, answer a health questionnaire, and wear masks. Group sizes will be kept small, social distancing and sanitizing will be strictly enforced, and the duration of the program will be entirely outside to reduce the risk of spreading disease. 

Due to the ongoing pandemic, and changing state & local regulations, all our programs are subject to cancellation in which full refunds will be issued. 

If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact the Program Director at:
