The League aims to inspire an ethic of environmental stewardship among all who love Tahoe. We hope to make learning about the Lake fun for all ages.
The League also issues print newsletters, electronic newsletters and action alerts. Sign up to receive these reminders.
The Fritzi & David Huntington Environmental Education Center in South Lake Tahoe is open year-round and serves as a hub for hundreds of visitors, providing information on Tahoe's ecology, history and scenic beauty, as well as merchandise to help spread the message to "Keep Tahoe Blue."
In addition, we have long supported science and education programs throughout the region. We also host tables at environmental events and monthly social events to provide a fun and casual venue for learning how to reduce your footprint at Lake Tahoe. Check our events page for more information.
Our social events aim to engage the local community and increase awareness of the footprint we leave behind as we live and play in the Lake Tahoe Basin. The League hosts one to two social events per month at various local businesses throughout Tahoe. Each event features live music and entertainment, games and trivia, and a raffle with prizes from local businesses and blue business partners. We hope you'll join us for a happy hour, silent disco or masquerade ball if you are in the area. Check our events page for more information.
Tabling and Earth Day
We aim to be a leading presence at all environmental events throughout the Tahoe Basin, hosting tables with information on protecting and restoring Lake Tahoe. In April, look for our “Keep Tahoe Blue” table at Earth Day festivals throughout the Basin and surrounding cities in California and Nevada. Check our events page for this year’s locations.

Supporting science and education:
Tahoe Environmental Research Center
The League donated the first $100,000 to launch the fundraising effort for TERC in Incline Village. TERC is a section of the UC Davis Institute of the Environment. UC Davis research at Lake Tahoe began with famed researcher Dr. Charles Goldman in 1959, who first documented Lake Tahoe’s clarity decline. The center is committed to providing objective scientific information for restoration and sustainable use of the Lake Tahoe Basin. Today, it is a perfect place to take a group of students to learn about the science, history and stewardship of Lake Tahoe. In addition to research laboratories, the center features excellent educational displays about Lake Tahoe’s unique clarity and the science behind saving it.
UC Davis and Charles Goldman
The League has long supported the efforts of Dr. Charles Goldman, who first began studying Lake Tahoe’s clarity in the 1950s. The League helped fund several documentary films highlighting Goldman’s research.
