Notes from Grace:
Hello all, what a fine,
warm summer. Desolation is stunning right now.
Just a reminder, there is a special Toiyabe Chapter fundraiser Sunday,
June 15, from 4-8 p.m. at Sand Harbor. Twenty artists will be painting
Lake Tahoe on the beach, and their work will be auctioned at 7 p.m.
Admission is free and there will be food and wine. (Sand Harbor will
charge $10 for parking, so there is a good reason to carpool.) See
details in the flyer--Paint Tahoe Blue.
Also, at REI in Reno Wednesday June 11 there will be a free lecture
on Tahoe Flora and Fauna. The presenter will be Kirk Hardie, co-director
of the Tahoe Institute for Natural Science (TINs). I attended this presentation
at the Folsom REI and it is exactly right for all we are hearing and
seeing outside right now--flowers, birds, trees, shrubs.
And, don't forget, the First
Annual Tahoe Sierra Club Wilderness Photography Contest is underway,
(see flyer also attached). This is a in honor of the 50th anniversary
of the Wilderness Act. The winner will be awarded $250 at the TASC Summer
Fundraiser July 16th, using funds donated in honor of our former chair,
Bob Anderson. Photos must be received by July 10, 2014.
Tickets for the TASC summer fundraiser at Stonehenge are now available!
$35 at Lake of the Sky Outfitters, Aspen Hollow or Emerald Bay Physical
Therapy. For additional information call 530-577-2000.
