The event will be free of charge for visitors, offering a full day of educational and fun activities for the whole family to enjoy.

“The Tahoe Truckee Earth Day festival is a fun and interactive way to learn about environmental sustainability,” said Sam Kieckhefer, spokesman for Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows.

The Earth Day celebration in The Village at Squaw Valley is a great way to share our passion for the environment with our guests while educating future generations on the importance of being mindful of our impact,” he said.
