Stay Connected to the Lake You Love
Maintaining a sense of connection - to the people you care about and causes that move you - is so important these days. Even in times of crisis, you can take comfort knowing that the League continues to protect the Lake we all love. And that’s because we have you with us.

Please support Lake Tahoe again for a special #GivingTuesdayNow on May 5.
This event is a new global day of unity and giving created as an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19. It is an opportunity for people to use their individual power of generosity to remain connected and heal. 

All of our ongoing work and the success we’ve achieved in our 63-year history are only possible because of the generosity of our members and faithful supporters like you. Thank you.

Together we Keep Tahoe Blue.
What's Open in Tahoe?
Yesterday, the US Forest Service extended closures of National Forest sites in Tahoe's South Shore Recreation Corridor. Other governments and agencies either have or are pondering extending shelter in place restrictions and closures as well.

As this new normal continues, many of us wonder what’s actually open here in Tahoe, including those National Forest lands, state parks and businesses. We created this map with links to up-to-date information and resources from agencies and businesses in the Basin. Check it out on our website .

As shelter in place orders continue, the League will keep collaborating with agencies, businesses and partners across the region to prepare Lake Tahoe for visitors to return once it’s safe. Stay tuned for more.
earth month celebrations
Throughout April, the League celebrated the 50th anniversary of Earth Day. Our volunteers and supporters showed their love for Lake Tahoe too. They cleaned up their neighborhoods and trails, planted gardens, used their bikes instead of cars, competed against their friends in games of litter bingo, and recycled old clothes into handy reusable items.

All month long, the League offered a range of online activities, lessons, videos and webinars. And supporters like you took advantage! We’ll continue rolling out new content throughout May, so check our Events Page frequently.

Did you miss one of our events? No worries, they’re available anytime at our Activities & Lessons Page .
