Keep Tahoe Red, White and Blue Beach Cleanup

Keep Tahoe Red White and Blue Beach Cleanup - July 5

Why:
After Tahoe’s celebrated July Fourth festivities, our beaches are covered with trash, which can hurt wildlife and lake clarity. Each year, Tahoe residents and visitors turn out for our largest cleanup of the year to remove litter from Lake Tahoe's shores. You can help Keep Tahoe Blue by volunteering at a beach cleanup site!
