Our Core Volunteers

We are the League | Core Volunteer ProgramSince 2014, the League has used our Core Volunteer Program to recognize our most dedicated volunteers — those individuals who have given at least 15 hours in their first year volunteering with the League. Active Core Volunteers continue to work at two or more events each year. Some have given more than 50 hours of their time and effort to protect Lake Tahoe.

Collectively, our core volunteers have spent over 3,000 hours helping to Keep Tahoe Blue. We are proud to highlight our core volunteers and share their outstanding work.

Ready to get involved? Contact us at events@keeptahoeblue.org, fill out our short registration form or check our events page frequently for the next opportunity.

What’s your favorite place at Lake Tahoe?
All of Lake Tahoe is beautiful, but there's nothing quite like the view of the lake at Emerald Bay. It's a great place to see how breathtaking the lake really is.
