Who: Citizen-scientist volunteers. The South Lake Tahoe portion of the event is put on by the League to Save Lake Tahoe.
What: Snapshot Day is one of the longest-running watershed monitoring events on the West Coast of the United States, and is now in its 19th year.

Where: Meet at Lake Tahoe Community College, South Lake Tahoe, CA
When: Saturday, May 18th from 9 am to noon.
Why: To collect data and create a “snapshot” in time of the Tahoe-Truckee watershed health, and to build upon collective scientific knowledge of the watershed over time.
