Volunteer to help keep North Lake Tahoe beautiful and healthy. The North Lake Tahoe Ambassador Program is looking for volunteers to help distribute masks and hand sanitizer, hand out trash bags, and pick up litter.
“Our hope is that coordinated clean-up efforts, combined with increased trash pickup service and the placement of additional receptacles and signage will evoke permanent change across eastern Placer County,” explained Erin Casey, principal management analyst for Placer County. “Community outreach and visitor education will further support the infrastructure updates we have implemented to address these issues.”
The North Lake Tahoe Ambassador Program will support existing community clean-up days while also focusing on safety messaging to help keep businesses open. Following two free PPE distribution days where hand sanitizer, face masks and yard signs were made available to businesses and community members at no cost, there are still ample supplies to share.
“We recognize the innate need to keep North Lake Tahoe communities safe and local businesses open,” explained Jeffrey Hentz, CEO of the North Lake Tahoe Resort Association. “Our goal is to provide opportunities for full-time residents to participate in and also educate and activate visitors and part-time residents to support these efforts and get involved with various aspects of destination stewardship – taking care of the environment as if it was their own home. While we are not promoting travel to North Lake Tahoe, we know there is an overwhelming desire for people to get outside and enjoy nature – we want to ensure they are doing so responsibly. Through a variety of content campaigns and the newly launched Ambassador Program, we are committed to ongoing efforts that support the region as a whole.”
