Tahoe Area Environmental Issues
- Tahoe Keys Weeds - We must protect the purity and clarity of Lake Tahoe from invasive, non-native weeds, but chemical poisons are not the solution! We oppose the inclusion of aquatic herbicides in the Tahoe Keys Control Methods Test, currently under consideration by the Lake Tahoe Planning Agency and Lahontan Water Board.
- Washoe Meadows State Park - Washoe Meadows State Park is rich in native wildlife, including black bear, pine marten, long eared bats, northern goshawk, and migrating birds. The Upper Truckee River, home to many species of fish, forms the park’s eastern boundary. The river separates the state park from a state-owned recreation area and 18-hole golf course. California State Parks has proposed a plan to restore the Upper Truckee that includes moving half of the golf course into the Washoe Meadows State Park.
