California Tahoe Conservancy celebrates 25 years at Tahoe City’s Commons Beach

TAHOE/TRUCKEE – The California Tahoe Conservancy will celebrate its 25th anniversary on Thursday, Sept. 16, with a party that fittingly takes place on the shores of the very lake it works so hard to preserve, protect and enhance.

This casual celebration will take place at Commons Beach and is free to the public, noon – 2 p.m., featuring live music, food, speakers and commemorative gifts.

Since its inception, the Conservancy has authorized more than $450 million to acquire more than 4,700 properties and facilitate hundreds of resource enhancement and public access projects throughout the California side of the Lake Tahoe Basin. Commons Beach, the event venue, is one of the agency’s signature projects.

“This is our way of celebrating this milestone with the community,” said Patrick Wright, the Conservancy’s executive director. “It’s remarkable how much the Conservancy has accomplished in 25 years. Looking back at what we and our partners have achieved, I am both excited and optimistic for the future of the Lake Tahoe Basin.”

Reservations are not required for the celebration, but RSVPs are appreciated. RSVP to or call 582-3617.

In conjunction with the anniversary celebration, the Conservancy will roll out its newly designed license plate. California drivers have a unique opportunity to be part of the continued efforts to protect this special place by purchasing a Lake Tahoe environmental license plate.
