Clean Up The Lake
Project Partners: Clean Up The Lake, Tahoe Blue Vodka, Vail Resorts & Epic Promise, Nevada Division of State Lands
Total Project Cost: $225,000
Tahoe Fund Goal: $200,000
We all know Lake Tahoe for its blue hues and unparalleled clarity, but what if we told you the lake has a dirty secret? After decades as one of the most popular recreation destinations in the country, a scary amount of trash is being discovered under the surface.
Tahoe Fund is excited to team up with Clean Up the Lake to remove trash around all 72 miles of Lake Tahoe with a SCUBA dive team of professionals and volunteers in 2021. This past summer, the team cleaned up 6 miles of Lake Tahoe and recovered more than 2,000 pounds of trash.
Thanks to an amazing partnership with Tahoe Blue Vodka, made with Tahoe’s crystal clear water, every dollar contributed to this project was matched by Tahoe Blue Vodka up to $100,000.
Vail Resorts generously donated $25,000 in support of this program. The donation was matched by Tahoe Blue Vodka, bringing the project a huge step closer to our fundraising goal.
Huge thank you to everyone who donated! We have exceeded our goal of raising $200,000 for this project. Stay tuned for more updates when clean-up efforts begin this spring.
Thanks to all of this support, we can lead Lake Tahoe to a cleaner tomorrow, while educating everyone on the importance of environmental stewardship.
