Stories in the Snow with the Tahoe Fund
Stop by the Overlook to pick-up a Stories in the Snow kit and learn how to take pictures of snowflakes with your cell phone.
Saturday, Sunday: Jan 18 - Jan 19
The Tahoe Fund is partnering with DRI to provide 1,500 “Stories in the Snow” kits to visitors of Tahoe area ski resorts so they can help collect microscopic images of snowflakes using their smartphones and a special portable macro-lense. Each “Story in the Snow” kit contains a macro lens, thermometer and snow crystal capture card. With these kits, participants can take pictures of freshly-fallen snow with their smartphone and macro lens, then send their images to the Stories in Snow team through the Tahoe Citizen Science App. They will be engaging in important science and environmental stewardship as they learn about our snow.
