Here at the Tahoe Fund, we really love what we do. Every day, we get to find creative ways to restore our lakes and streams, preserve our forest and trails, and make the great outdoors safer and more accessible.
After all, it’s a pretty good day at the office when we get to team up with the U.S. Forest Service to plant Jeffrey Pine, Incense Cedar and Sugar Pine seedlings on 50 acres of land destroyed by the Emerald Fire or build a brand new overlook at the Taylor Creek Visitor Center to watch the Kokanee salmon spawn a safe distance away from the bears. Or help harness the resources with our partners, such as the Nevada Department of Transportation, to build a 3-mile bike path from Incline Village to Sand Harbor.
Thus far, we’ve helped complete more than 30 environmental projects. Every time we finish one, we continue to monitor it closely. And over the years, we’ve noticed a definite pattern – the joy on peoples’ faces as they interact with these wonderful places. There’s no doubt about it. We made you smile. That’s why we created this new advertising campaign, to spread the joy we help bring to Tahoe thanks to the support of donors and wonderful partners.
