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.
In total, 23 new panels displays were created and installed in Fall 2022. These displays were then transcribed and recorded as an audio tour available on the TravelStory’s platform. They will also be translated into Spanish and Washoe.
