As you wander through a grove of quaking aspens, watch kokanee salmon swim in the creek, or take in beautiful meadow views, you’ll find that Taylor Creek in South Lake Tahoe is a great place to learn about Lake Tahoe’s natural environment.
That’s why the Tahoe Fund partnered with the National Forest Foundation to create Lake Tahoe’s first trilingual walking audio tour. Available in English, Spanish, and Washoe, the audio tour provides a guided experience of the interpretive trails at Taylor Creek and celebrates the history of the Washoe Tribe on their native lands. The tour is also available online for virtual exploration.
We invite you to join us to celebrate the launch of the audio tour on Saturday, June 17 from 2-6pm at the Taylor Creek Visitor Center. This all-ages event will feature demonstrations of the tour in all three languages, reading circles with stories in Washoe, Spanish, and English, and educational information from local organizations working to improve the Lake Tahoe environment.

This audio tour was made possible through collaboration between the USDA Forest Service Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit, The National Forest Foundation, The Washoe Tribe of Nevada and California, the Great Basin Institute, and generous contributions from Tahoe Fund donors.
