Description

The Washoe Tribe is working with the USDA Forest Service Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit and the California Tahoe Conservancy to restore 300 acres of Máyala Wáta (Meeks Creek and Meeks Meadow). The project involves removing conifers, performing culturally guided prescribed burning, conducting post-fire revegetation and restoration, and completing project effectiveness monitoring. By implementing the project, the Tribe is restoring an important cultural site within its ancestral lands, reducing wildfire risk, improving species diversity, fostering resilience to climate change impacts, and increasing Tribal capacity to implement culturally guided restoration activities.
