Conservancy Board Approves Funding for West Shore Forest Health Projects

Kings Beach, Calif. The California Tahoe Conservancy Board today authorized $414,074 to the California Department of Parks and Recreation for projects that improve forest health and reduce the risk of wildfire at Tahoe State Recreation Area and Ed Z’Berg Sugar Pine Point State Park. The funding is the first allocation of more than $6.8 million in Southern Nevada Public Land Management Act funds awarded to the Conservancy at last year’s Presidential Summit.

“On the eve of the ten-year anniversary of the devastating Angora Fire, today’s action to reduce the risk of future wildfires feels especially important,” said John Hooper, the Conservancy’s Vice Chairman of the Board.

The Board also awarded $20,000 to the League to Save Lake Tahoe for its Eyes on the Lake Program which trains volunteers to identify and report new or spreading aquatic invasive plant infestations in and around Lake Tahoe. The grant is part of the Conservancy’s new “Plates for Projects” summertime campaign which partners with local organizations to jointly promote Lake Tahoe License Plates and projects funded using License Plate revenue. More information on the campaign and this year’s partnership can be found here: www.keeptahoeblue.org/platesforprojects.

The Board also approved several long-term agreements with El Dorado County and the City of South Lake Tahoe for projects that will purify water flowing into Lake Tahoe and restore a heavily degraded section of Bijou Park Creek.

In addition to the projects in south shore, the Board approved the sale of development rights necessary to support the long-awaited Tahoe City Lodge Project, the first new hotel built in Tahoe City in decades and a flagship project of Placer County’s Area Plan.

Conservancy Organizes Distribution of 200 Free Bags

Conservancy Organizes Distribution of 200 Free Bags.  Efforts Support Community Sustainability.

South Lake Tahoe, California – January 21, 2014 – “Remember your reusable bags,” touts the sign outside of Grocery Outlet. Thanks to the Conservancy distribution of 200 reusable bags, today’s first 200 EBT (food stamp) users at Grocery Outlet will walk away with a free cloth tote.

“Conservation is not something you do on a Saturday afternoon, it’s an everyday step towards creating a sustainable Tahoe community,” said Tahoe Conservancy (Conservancy) Executive Director Patrick Wright.

The bags feature the California and Nevada Tahoe license plates. Over 96% of the funds raised through the sale of Tahoe license plates support hiking and biking trails and watershed restoration projects such as the Lower Blackwood Creek Restoration, Sawmill Bike Trail and Rabe Meadow Bike Path. California Tahoe Conservancy and Nevada Division of State Lands are beneficiaries of the plate fees.

When the Conservancy approached Grocery Outlet, they were eager to participate.

“We suggested that the bags go towards EBT users to help them take part in the sustainability initiative,” said Grocery Outlet manager Kim Schouten.

The City of South Lake Tahoe’s single-use plastic bag ban went into effect on January 15, 2014. All shoppers will now pay a nominal fee for paper bags and are encouraged to utilize reusable bags.

Established in 1984, the mission of the Conservancy is to lead California’s efforts to restore and enhance the extraordinary natural and recreational resources of the Lake Tahoe Basin.
