Tahoe Conservancy to Begin Surveying 79 Conservancy Properties in 2024

The California Tahoe Conservancy will begin coordinating surveys on 79 of its properties this year and wants to let neighbors know what to expect.

The Conservancy is a state agency with a mission to lead California’s efforts to restore and enhance the extraordinary natural and recreational resources of the Lake Tahoe Basin. The Conservancy manages approximately 4,700 state properties, totaling about 6,500 acres, on the California side of the Basin for open space, wildlife habitat, and recreation. The surveys help the Conservancy determine the location and extent of encroachments, prepare for forest health projects to reduce wildfire risk for neighbors, and manage natural resources to benefit wildlife.

If you live in the neighborhood of one of the properties to be surveyed, here is what to expect:

  • The Conservancy is working with a registered land surveyor to locate existing land survey monuments and install any missing land survey monuments on state land.
  • The surveyor anticipates beginning these surveys this year.
  • You may see a surveyor working adjacent to your property.
  • If winter weather conditions delay the surveying process, activities may continue in spring or summer 2025.
  • See below for a map of Conservancy properties to be surveyed.
