The Washoe Tribe (tribe) of Nevada and California, jointly with the U.S. Forest service, propose to restore 300 acres of meadow habitat in Meeks Meadow in Lake Tahoe, California through conifer removal, conifer thinning, and use of prescribed fire. Following conifer treatments and prescribed fire, the Tribe will implement long-term cultural management for riparian habitat enhancement and stream environment zone restoration, including the propagation and planting of culturally significant meadow and riparian plants in key meadow locations. This project will reduce forest fuels by removing encroaching conifers and reintroducing periodic burning as an ongoing meadow management tool. The meadow will be treated using a combination of mechanical and hand treatments.
