Taylor Creek Visitor Center Improvement Project
Project Partners: National Forest Foundation, U.S. Forest Service
Total Project Cost: $57,045.60
Funds Granted: $48,603.60
On the south shore of Lake Tahoe, Taylor Creek Visitor Center is the most popular visitor centers in the Basin. Enjoyed by over 200,000 people annually, the site provides a cost-free way to connect and experience this unique area. With four interpretive trails on the site, visitors can explore various self-guided tours through impressive natural areas while learning the cultural and environmental history along the way.
Unfortunately, most of the interpretive panels along these trails were installed in 1999 and are now weathered and unreadable. That’s why we’re teaming up with the National Forest Foundation and U.S. Forest Service to bring new panels to Taylor Creek.
New panels displays will be created this summer, then translated, allowing the Visitor Center to offer a downloadable audio tour for Spanish speakers. In total, 23 new panels will be installed in Summer 2022.
