Tahoe Area Group

Welcome to the Tahoe Area Sierra Club  

The Tahoe Area Group, or Tahoe Area Sierra Club, represents Club members in the Lake Tahoe basin and the greater Truckee River watershed above the California/Nevada state line, including the municipalities of South Lake Tahoe, Tahoe City, and Truckee, California, and Stateline and Incline Village in Nevada.  Tahoe Area Sierra Club spans two states and two Sierra Club chapters; the Mother Lode Chapter of California, and the Toiyabe Chapter of Nevada. 
Our mission is to ensure the ongoing protection of the natural environment and resources of the Lake Tahoe basin and Truckee River drainage.

Tahoe Area Environmental Issues 

Here are some of the environmental issues we're working on in the Tahoe Basin and Truckee River Drainage:  
  • 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. 

Outings and Events

Tahoe Area Group is dedicated to introducing members and non-members to the wonders of nature through our Outings and Events programs. 

  • Periodic outreach meetings with presentations by Tahoe Area Group activists and local naturalists are scheduled throughout the year.
