Restoring the pristine watershed

Courtesy League to Save Lake Tahoe

The 21st annual Tahoe Forest Stewardship Day is on Sept. 22 from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Nevada Beach in Zephyr Cove in Stateline, Nev. At this event hosted by Keep Tahoe Blue and U.S. Forest Service, volunteers of all ages and skill levels are invited to this fun, hands-on restoration day. By pitching in, participants are improving the watershed habitats that surround Lake Tahoe. Healthy forests act as natural pollution filters to keep Lake Tahoe blue.

Wear sturdy boots, clothes that are comfortable and can get dirty and sunglasses. Bring a reusable water bottle and leather work gloves, if you have them. Keep Tahoe Blue will provide refreshments to volunteers. Those who would like can join in a lunch celebration following the cleanup in conjunction with Oskar Blues Brewery.

Participants are encouraged to walk or ride a bike. Those arriving on foot or by bicycle will receive a surprise reward. | RSVP (530) 541-5399, keeptahoeblue.org
