Organizations invited to submit project ideas online
LAKE TAHOE, Calif. and Nev. – November 7, 2017 – The Tahoe Fund has opened its online project submission portal for projects that will help solve the environmental challenges facing Lake Tahoe. Organizations are invited to submit project ideas by January 31, 2018 at http://www.tahoefund.org/our-projects/submit-a-project/.
The Tahoe Fund seeks projects for its 2018 Signature and Premier Project Portfolios that will improve Lake Tahoe’s environment, reduce the risk of wildfire, and address climate change by enhancing water quality, restoring watersheds, creating healthier forests, improving transportation and fostering outdoor recreation. The Tahoe Fund also seeks to build a greater sense of stewardship in the Tahoe Basin.
“The Tahoe Fund is looking for ideas and projects that will have a real impact on the Basin’s environment,” said Tahoe Fund Projects Committee Member and Clear Capital President, Kevin Marshall. “With the support of the private community, the Tahoe Fund has the passion and ability to get high return projects done.”
Since 2010, the Tahoe Fund has raised funds from private donors for more than 25 environmental improvement projects including new bike paths, watershed restorations, removal of aquatic invasive species and environmental stewardship programs. The Tahoe Fund is actively raising funds for two 2017 Signature Projects: the Sugar Pine Reforestation project and the Aquatic Invasive Species Bottom Barrier Challenge.
Eligible projects must be able to demonstrate that any necessary environmental permits will be obtained, enjoy strong community support, and have other sources of funding identified. Further details can be found at http://www.tahoefund.org/our-projects/submit-a-project/
