Why should I adopt a beach?

Debris on Lake Tahoe’s beaches affects everyone's enjoyment of this beautiful natural treasure. Debris on the beaches and streets can easily find its way to the lake and adversely impact lake clarity, water quality, and native plants and wildlife. Public participation in beach cleanups is part of basin-wide environmental stewardship initiatives.

Who can adopt a beach?

Any group, organization, business, family, or individual may clean a beach.
