Keeping Lake Tahoe Well

Lupine flowers

North Lake Tahoe has many programs that protect the beauty and wellness of the natural environment and community. The Tahoe Regional Planning Agency manages many programs for environmental protection. Homeowners receive guidance on how to control irrigation runoff. TRPA also works to maintain the integrity of the shoreline.

The Keep Tahoe Blue organization offers ways that visitors and homeowners can get involved in environmental clean-up programs. The Tahoe Blue Crews volunteer program conducts cleanup efforts at streams, beaches and trails around the region that can be impacted by litter from tourism.

Lake Tahoe also offers a great free public transportation system. This includes trams, buses, shuttles and trolleys. Emissions from the many tourists that visit Lake Tahoe by car eventually ends up as residue that affects the lake’s clarity. You can reduce your carbon footprint, while finding easy hubs to get virtually anywhere around Lake Tahoe.
