Join us for a morning of land-healing, intensely gratifying, ecosystem restoration work.

Volunteers of all ages and skill levels are invited to this fun, hands-on, in-the-field event. By pitching in, you will help improve the ecosystem function and the wildlife habitats that surround Lake Tahoe. Healthy forests and meadows act as natural pollution filters to Keep Tahoe Blue.

Register: Sign up or log in to your Volunteer Account. Respond to the event to RSVP. You will receive a confirmation from This event is RSVP only – please RSVP by June 14 at noon to receive a free lunch. Final details will be sent the week of the event.

Location: Meeks Meadow. Exact meeting location will be provided once you RSVP.

What we are doing: Volunteers do not need previous experience to participate in any project. We will be using loppers to remove small conifer trees encroaching Meeks Meadow. This work is the start of a multi-year restoration project led by the Washoe Environmental Protection Department to bring the meadow back to a resilient natural filter for Lake Tahoe.

The site we will be working in is one mile off of the Meeks Bay trailhead.

Work is from 9 am – 12:30 pm and lunch is from 12:30 – 1:30 pm.

What to bring: Sturdy boots, long pants and long sleeves, sunglasses, work gloves (if you have them), and a full reusable water bottle.

We provide: Training, equipment, refreshments, fun giveaways and lunch for volunteers afterwards.

Partners: We are proud to work with the Washoe Environmental Protection Department for this event.

The League to Save Lake Tahoe acknowledges that its offices and work exist within the aboriginal homelands of the Washoe Tribe of NV and CA. Before they were forcibly removed from their ancestral home, the Waší∙šiw or Washoe People were the original stewards of Lake Tahoe and surrounding lands since time immemorial and have continued to play a significant role in the preservation and protection of the Tahoe Basin. We respect and are inspired by the Washoe Tribe’s legacy and profound stewardship of the Tahoe Basin. The League is honored to work with the Washoe Tribe of NV and CA to protect this special place today and for generations to come.
