Muskopf, Sarah



Sarah Muskopf has been working on the Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit as an aquatic biologist for 19 years. I am the program leader for the fisheries department and have managed recovery projects for federally listed aquatic species around the Lake Tahoe basin. I have also led projects intended to restore sensitive habitat to a more resilient state and improve both the quality and quantity of habitat needed for native species. I represent to forest on various working groups including the Lahontan Cutthroat Trout Recovery Implementation Team and the Lake Tahoe Aquatic Invasive Species Coordination Committee. I also serve as the Regionally Aquatic Invasive Species Program Manager. I received my undergraduate and graduate degree at Humboldt State University. I completed my thesis right here in Lake Tahoe studying the impacts of beaver dams and beaver dam removal on water quality.
