The League to Save Lake Tahoe's board and staff are greatly saddened by the loss of Adolphus Andrews Jr., the League's past president. Mr. Andrews served on our board of directors from 1965 to 2005, including many years in key officer positions in addition to his time as our president. Long-time associates recall his passion for protecting Lake Tahoe and his hands-on manner of ensuring the League had the financial support to live up to our mission.

Innovation helps keep harmful stormwater from Tahoe

In a winter like this, anyone driving Tahoe roads appreciates efforts by local jurisdictions and agencies to spread road abrasives to improve safety. Fine sediment pollution from those abrasives can also hurt the Lake's clarity, but Tahoe agencies are finding innovative ways to protect the Lake.

UPCOMING EVENTS
Pipe Keepers is a citizen science program to address the threat of stormwater pollution entering Lake Tahoe. Runoff from rain storms and snowmelt is the largest source of pollution that degrades Lake clarity. League staff will train you to survey local neighborhoods and collect stormwater samples during rain and snowmelt events. Join us at a training in February.
