TranscriptionSegment 33 Tahoe Forest Stewardship Day (Air Date: September 16) Anchor Intro: Last summer's Gondola Fire charred nearly 700 acres of forest in South Lake Tahoe. This weekend you have a chance to help rehabilitate the land burned in the fire and learn something about the environment. Shelly Purdy has details in tonight's Lake Tahoe Report. ((Take Pkg)) ((Nats fire...)) ((Track 1)) It was a fast burning and very hot fire that raced up the mountainsid. Luckily no homes were destroyed…but unluckily nearly 700 acres of timber were charred. ((Nats shoveline @ :36)) ((Track 2)) And that's where you come in. No matter your age or ability are invited to participate in this year's annual Stewardship Day sponsored by the League to Save Lake Tahoe. You'll get a chance to learn about the forest and do some work rehabilitating land that burned in the fire. ((sot @ 6:08, Dan Sussman, League to Save Lake Tahoe)) "The purpose of the event is twofold. One, we invite people to come out so hopefully they'll have some connection to the area they live in. they'll have a chance to learn about the forest that surrounds them and as well as doing some good work." ((Track 3)) This will be the second year of work at the Gondola Fire site. Last year, workers placed logs in areas prone to erosion. The logs help keep soil in place so new vegetation can begin to grow. ((Standup @ 14:08, Shelly Purdy)) "This little Jeffrey Pine was planted during last year's Stewardship Day and as you can see the forest is starting to re-grow and wildlife is even returning to the area." ((Nats woodpecker)) ((Track 4)) The woodpeckers are here…and so are the red tailed hawks. Stewardship day will give you the chance to see it all and learn about fire's devastating effects. ((sot @ 7:37)) "The Gondola fire really did give people a knock on the door and said look this can happen in your back yard, this can happen to you. Why don't you come out and see what you can do to restore the area. Why not come out and learn how not only how it effects you but how you can effect the land..." ((Track 5)) With the Lake Tahoe Environmental Education Coalition, I'm Shelly Purdy for kolo news channel 8. Anchor Tag: Stewardship Day will be held this Saturday in South Lake Tahoe beginning at 9 AM. In addition to various restoration projects, there will be informational booth set up at the event where you can learn about defensible space, forest ecology, invasive weeds and many other topics.
