Be a Steward of Stormwater and help keep pollution out of Lake Tahoe! Water from roadside storm drains is often not treated before entering Lake Tahoe or its tributaries. Most of the nutrients and fine sediment particles that cause clarity loss originate from roadways in our local commercial centers and neighborhoods.

Equipment, refreshments, and prizes will be provided. No previous skills needed, free to attend, and bring your reusable water bottle. Please bike, walk or carpool three or more for a special prize!

In partnership with the City of South Lake Tahoe Stormwater Program 

Register for exact meeting location.

Volunteers will

Install English and Spanish markers onto storm drain grates
