July 10, 2013
INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. — The Tahoe Fund is kicking off its 2013 fundraising season with the announcement of four 2013 Signature Projects that will help restore lake clarity and improve recreation in the basin.
The projects include beach improvements at Sand Harbor State Park, Asian Clam control in Emerald Bay, a mile of bike trail along the West Shore, and a new bridge across Angora Creek in the Washoe Meadows State Park. Interested donors can learn more about these projects on the Tahoe Fund website by visiting http://www.tahoefund.org/2013projects.
"We are excited to connect with so many of those passionate about improving the Tahoe environment," said Tahoe Fund CEO Amy Berry. "Through the generosity of our donors, we have had great success getting important projects funded and in the ground. We are hopeful we can again harness the incredible passion for Tahoe and really make a difference for the Lake."
The Tahoe Fund is the first and only nonprofit in the Tahoe Basin dedicated to raising money for environmental improvement projects to ensure a sustainable Tahoe for many generations to come. The fund focuses on environmental improvement projects that restore lake clarity, improve recreation and build a strong sense of environmental stewardship in the region.
The 2013 Signature Projects will be highlighted at the Tahoe Fund's third annual Founders Circle Summer Dinner on August 18 at the Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe. The event will also celebrate the early founding donors of the Tahoe Fund. To learn more about joining the Founders Circle or attending the event, visit tahoefund.org.
Founded in 2010, the organization through its generous donors has funded two high priority watershed restoration projects, the Blackwood Creek/Eagle Rock Trail restoration on the West Shore and the Incline/Third Creek Restoration on the North Shore; segments of the Tahoe Bikeway in Tahoe City and South Lake Tahoe; the Van-Sickle Bi-State Park in South Lake Tahoe; and the UC Davis "State of the Lake" report.
