The grand plan for Lake Tahoe calls for restoring habitat, cleaning up creeks and keeping the lake and surrounding areas clean, according to a U.S. Forest Service draft management plan released Friday.
The Forest Plan is an attempt to provide direction for which recreational activities will be allowed on the 154,000 acres of public land surrounding Lake Tahoe and how natural resources will be managed over the next two decades. The last time the plan was updated was in 1988.
"We've developed four alternatives that we believe reflect what we've heard to date about how we can best manage National Forest System lands in the Lake Tahoe Basin," said Nancy Gibson, forest supervisor for the Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit. "Now we're encouraging the public to take a look at these alternatives and tell us what measures they prefer and why."
