What we are doing: Volunteers of all ages and skill levels are invited to this fun, hands-on restoration 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.

We will be repairing fencing that surrounds and protects the endemic plant, the Tahoe Yellow Cress. This plant only grows on the shores of Lake Tahoe and no where else in the world! We also will be removing invasive weeds and planting willow stakes.

What to bring: Sturdy boots, long pants and long sleeves, sunglasses, work gloves (if you have them), a face mask (if you are unvaccinated), any special snacks that you would like and a full reusable water bottle.

We provide: Equipment, training, snacks and giveaways.

Partners: United States Forest Service - Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit 

Further details: Details will be sent closer to the event date to registered volunteers. Volunteers under 18 will need to have a guardian sign the waiver and the volunteer must bring the signed waiver to the event. The guardian may also attend the event and can sign off for the minor at the event.

For questions or more information, email events@keeptahoeblue.org.

Health and Safety:

We’re all in this together. When we follow the guidelines and put forth the effort we can keep ourselves healthy, keep the community healthy, and Keep Tahoe Blue.

When taking part in any League activity, event or program, please:

  • Wear a mask if you are unvaccinated.

  • Stay home if you are feeling unwell or displaying symptoms of illness.

  • Sneeze or cough into a cloth or tissue. If those aren’t available, use your elbow.

  • Wash hands regularly with soap or hand sanitizer.

  • Avoid shaking hands, hugging or engaging in any unnecessary physical contact (bummer, we know).

The League is committed to providing safe, fun and meaningful events while pursuing our mission to Keep Tahoe Blue. Our event procedures and preparation safeguard the health of our volunteers, staff and community. 

To protect our volunteers and community, the League will: 

  • Stay home if we are feeling unwell or displaying symptoms of illness.

  • Ensure equipment is regularly cleaned with disinfectant and laundered, especially prior to each event.

  • Regularly sanitize frequently touched surfaces.

  • Ensure our staff wears face masks during events.

  • Provide face masks to participants who request them.

  • Provide signage for best practices and reminders for infection control at the event.

  • Provide sanitization materials, including hand sanitizer and gloves.

  • Minimize material handling and handoffs, and provide online materials where we can.

  • We will provide first aid kits, but not first aid assistance.

Stay current on all things Lake Tahoe
