Donate Green Bucks and contribute to hiking and biking trails, watershed restoration projects, wildlife protection, and environmental stewardship programs.
What is Green Bucks?
Green Bucks is a program of the Tahoe Fund and the Truckee River Watershed Council to harness the passion of visitors and residents to help care for our extraordinary environment.
How does it work?
Local businesses collect one dollar from their guests from purchases of lift tickets, hotel accommodations, and other items at participating resorts and businesses in the Tahoe and Truckee region. As an “opt-out” program, guests may choose not to participate and the contribution will be removed from their bill.
Where will the money go?
Proceeds from the Green Bucks program will support the efforts of the Tahoe Fund and the Truckee River Watershed Council in their missions to improve conservation, recreation, and stewardship education throughout the Lake Tahoe Basin and the Truckee River Watershed.
Green Bucks will help fund:
- Miles of hiking, biking and ADA-accessible trails
- Access for swimming, kayaking, canoeing and stand-up paddle boarding
- Open spaces for wildlife habitat and scenic views
- Restoration of rivers, lakes, meadows, wetlands, forests
- Protection of fish and wildlife habitat
- Boating and fishing access
- Landscaping and trail re-alignment to prevent runoff
- Signage and interpretive displays to guide visitors
