~Content Provide by North Lake Tahoe~
North Lake Tahoe is one of the most beautiful places in the world. Its pristine water, crisp air, and inspiring mountain landscape has captured the imagination of millions over generations, and but for an increase in human activity over the years, the region is a shining example of nature’s beauty when well-preserved.
That preservation is no coincidence.
As a community, the people of our mountain paradise (both locals and visitors alike) are dedicated to practices that are not only environmentally friendly but also promote a more resilient and robust community. Through education programs such as Know Before You Go, the Traveler Responsibility Pledge, Wildfire and Water Safety, and COVID-19 resources, we have included visitors in our mission to be a model of sustainable practices that touch local businesses, community members and tourists alike.
As World Earth Day dawns again, we reaffirm our commitment to keeping North Lake Tahoe protected, and invite you to join us in doing so through the newly launched Traveler Responsibility Pledge. To get started, we’ve put together a guide with actionable steps you can take to implement each pillar of the Pledge.
