Snapshot Day 2021

Saturday, May 15 | 8am - 1pm

water quality sampling

Snapshot Day is a citizen science water quality monitoring event that takes place every May with the goal of connecting the community with its watershed.

Snapshot Day LogoVolunteers fan out across the Truckee River Watershed to take water samples from creeks, streams and smaller lakes, as well as Lake Tahoe itself, to get a snapshot at one moment in time of the water quality of the Tahoe-Truckee watershed. Snapshot Day will be held on Saturday, May 15 for all regions.

We hope to include volunteers in this year’s Snapshot Day if safe to do so with COVID-19. If you’d like to participate in Snapshot Day 2021, CLICK HERE to complete this interest form and receive updates. For safety, volunteering as a family unit or "pod" is preferred.
