Raise a glass to the bubbles protecting Lake Tahoe from aquatic invasive plants
As the League to Save Lake Tahoe rings in 2019, we are gaining a greater sense of appreciation for tiny bubbles. Turns out tiny bubbles are good for more than just celebratory champagne, they can also provide a strong defense against the spread of aquatic invasive plants that threaten Lake Tahoe's clarity.

The League, in collaboration with experts from Canada and the Tahoe Keys Property Owners Association, installed a "v-shaped" wall of tiny bubbles across the channel between the Tahoe Keys lagoons and Lake Tahoe. The tiny bubbles dislodge plant fragments from boats passing through the "bubble curtain" and move them to the edges of the channel where they can easily be collected and removed. We will raise our glass of bubbly to that!

Our hope is that this "bubble curtain" will prove effective and serve as a solution that we can implement at other infested marinas around Lake Tahoe while we continue to look for other long-term solutions.
Squeezing more lake-friendly rides into the year with Lime bikes and scooters
In 2017, the League rolled out an innovative bike-share program to make it easier to enjoy Tahoe without a car. In its first year, the program got thousands of people out of traffic and onto Lime bikes.

The program was such a success that in 2018 we expanded upon it by introducing Lime electric scooters to South Lake Tahoe. Now, the stats are in and we can see a clear story emerging. Making smart transit solutions available in and around our Lake results in big wins for our congested roadways, the environment and Lake Tahoe.

By the numbers:
  • 225,998 trips 
  • 71,546 riders
  • 260,710 miles
  • 1 Lake Tahoe

In just one year, with each riders help, we were able to remove over 200,000 car miles and the associated pollution from Tahoe's clogged roadways helping to Keep Tahoe Blue. We look forward to expanding on this successful program in 2019.
