KINGS BEACH, Calif. — Keep Tahoe Blue and the Tahoe Blue Crew will be hosting a clean up following Labor Day weekend celebrations which normally leave beaches covered in trash, which can affect wildlife and lake clarity. 

Residents are invited to participate for free in Kings Beach at the local public beaches from 8:30-11:30 a.m. Tuesday, Sept. 6, with final details sent out online after registering for the event. Walk-ins are also welcome, but will need to complete a volunteer waiver on site. 

Participants should bring a water bottle and sunscreen and should wear comfy clothing that could potentially get dirty. In addition, participants should bring snacks and clean up gloves if they have them. 

Tahoe Blue Crews will provide cleanup materials, gloves and hand sanitizer, refreshments, and cool giveaways. For more information, visit
