Clean Up The Lake
Project Partners: Clean Up The Lake, Tahoe Blue Vodka, Nevada Division of State Lands
Total Project Cost: $260,000
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. Thousands of pounds of trash sit below Lake Tahoe’s surface, breaking apart and impacting aquatic habitats.
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, which is made with Tahoe’s crystal clear water, every dollar contributed to this project will be matched by Tahoe Blue Vodka up to $100,000.
With private support, we can lead Lake Tahoe to a cleaner tomorrow, while educating everyone on the importance of environmental stewardship.
Thank you for helping us achieve this match to clean up this national treasure.
