Senator Dianne Feinstein will host the 18th annual Lake Tahoe Summit on August 19th at the historic Valhalla Estate in South Lake Tahoe. The theme of this year’s summit is “Drought, Wildfire, and Invasive Species: Confronting the Effects of Climate Change on Lake Tahoe.”
The summit is open to the public and will feature remarks from Senator Feinstein, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval. California Governor Jerry Brown will offer a keynote address. Guests are encouraged to register online at www.tahoefund.org/2014summit.
“The Tahoe Fund is thrilled to once again be the organizing sponsor of this important event,” said Art Chapman, vice chairman of the Tahoe Fund board of directors. “The future health of our lake is dependent on the support of our public officials and the private community that is brought together annually at the Lake Tahoe Summit.”
Feinstein is author of the Lake Tahoe Restoration Act, a bill to restore Lake Tahoe and the Tahoe Basin. The legislation authorizes projects to improve Lake Tahoe’s water clarity, reduce risks for catastrophic wildfires, combat invasive species and protect threatened species and wildlands.
The Tahoe Fund’s annual Founders Circle Summer Dinner, held the night before the summit, is sold out.
