Lake Tahoe Managers Workshop on 5/29

Last week, Alec Kretchun, Dr Louise Loudermilk (USFS, former DE&L member), and Dr Peter Weisberg (U of Nevada-Reno) led a workshop to discuss our modeling results with managers in the Lake Tahoe Basin. This is the third of three such workshops and it was a hit! Ecologists, foresters, entomologists, and others from the USFS, State of NV, and local conservation organizations all joined us at the beautiful Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit Headquarters, where presentations and discussion focused on the results of our latest round of modeling efforts (primarily the impacts of bark beetle outbreaks). We would like to sincerely thank everyone who attended, particularly Beverly Bulaon from USFS Forest Health and Protection who gave a great presentation on bark beetle activity and dynamics across California and the West. Unfortunately, all the great conversations made us forget to take pictures of the meeting, but we did manage to sneak out for a hike to Castle Rock in the afternoon and snap some shots. You can't beat Lake Tahoe in late May!
