Despite Tahoe’s reputation as one of our nation’s natural treasures – which sees four times the annual visitation of Yellowstone – Lake Tahoe is not a national park. So it lacks the consistent funding and strict protections needed to manage human impacts on the environment, including litter, tailpipe emissions, and habitat degradation. On the flip side, the Basin is an outdoor playground accessible to millions. To preserve Tahoe’s natural splendor and protect the region’s economic vitality, organizations, businesses, and agencies are building a sustainable recreation model based on “shared stewardship” with travelers.
