South Shore Community Cleanup Planned for Earth Day

April 15, 2021

LAKE TAHOE — On Thursday, April 22, the League to Save Lake Tahoe will host a community litter cleanup event on Tahoe’s south shore to celebrate Earth Day and help Keep Tahoe Blue. Locals and visitors are invited to participate to kick off Trash-Free Thursday, one of a week-long series of themed days to ring in #EarthWeekTahoe. To ensure the health and safety of everyone involved, participation in the cleanup is by RSVP only.

As spring rolls into Tahoe, melting snow reveals a winter’s worth of litter. Tahoe’s world-renowned natural beauty and delicate ecology don’t play well with to-go food waste, disposable masks, and a rainbow of plastic trash left on sidewalks, trails and sled hills. The League to Save Lake Tahoe invites members of the public to join a morning of physically distanced TLC for the planet.

Visit to reserve your spot, learn what to bring, and get a glimpse of what to expect from 9:00 am to noon on Earth Day, Thursday, April 22. 

“Warm weather is giving us an early preview of summer, and showing us all the litter that’s been buried under the snow until now,” said Marilee Movius from the League to Save Lake Tahoe. “The League and our event partners hope you’ll join us to set the tone for a responsible, respectful and litter-free Tahoe throughout 2021.”
