Last year, 226 volunteers picked up more than 2,584 pounds of trash from 35 miles of shoreline. Volunteer support is urgently needed to help reduce litter on Tahoe beaches.

All volunteers should wear comfortable shoes and bring a water bottle and snack. Trash bags, recycling bags, and gloves are provided, but volunteers who already have work gloves are encouraged to bring them.
