TAHOE CITY, Calif. — The Lake Tahoe Outreach Committee this week announced it is now taking orders for Take Care signs.

A new partnership with Vail Resorts’ Epic Promise program will allow the committee to provide signs at reduced prices. The Take Care campaign includes more than 60 messages that remind residents and visitors to take care of the environment. The digital files of the messages are available to download for free, but until now it was cost prohibitive for some to print the signs.

“The campaign has been adopted by many in the region, but to really have the impact we all want we need more of the messages in more places,” Amy Berry, Tahoe Fund CEO and member of the Lake Tahoe Outreach Committee, said in a statement. “Through this incredible partnership with Vail Resorts, we can make the physical signs more available to more agencies, businesses and organizations.”

A Take Care Kit featuring digital files with summer, winter, Spanish and kid-friendly artwork is available with the following messages: general litter; cigarette butts and beer bottle litter; dog waste; fire safety; bear awareness; and aquatic invasive species prevention. To order signs, email info@takecaretahoe.org.

“We all have a responsibility to help take care of this mountain treasure,” said Pete Sonntag, Vail Resorts COO for the Tahoe Region. “It is our pleasure and honor to help expand the impact of this important campaign by utilizing our sign shops.”

The Lake Tahoe Outreach Committee is composed of the League to Save Lake Tahoe, North Lake Tahoe Visitors Authority, Tahoe Fund, Tahoe Regional Planning Agency, Tahoe Resource Conservation District and UC Davis-Tahoe Environmental Resource Center.

The campaign is the result of several months of collaboration after a workshop in September 2013 that bought together more than 60 regional stakeholders. Visit takecaretahoe.org to learn more.
