How you helpAs a small organization with a limited staff, volunteers can be tremendously helpful in achieving our mission and broadening our reach.
About usThrough applied field research, TINS works collaboratively to help public and private land managers answer the questions that inform management decisions. Through outreach and citizen science, we engage the public directly, and allow them access to a deeper natural history experience and a greater comprehension of the region’s natural resources. Our education programs fulfill many needs faced by educators, parents, and a community investing in its future: providing curricula, educational material, and instruction that conforms to California and Nevada education standards, awakening students’ curiosity of the natural world and inviting them to become engaged in their immediate natural surroundings, and promoting responsible environmental citizenship by helping students develop the tools they will need to make informed decisions relevant to the Tahoe region’s natural resource issues.
