LAKE TAHOE, CA/NV–Thursday, August 7, 2014

This year, Senator Dianne Feinstein will host the 18th Annual Lake Tahoe Summit on August 19th at the historic Valhalla Estate in South Lake Tahoe. The theme of this year’s summit is “Drought, Wildfire, and Invasive Species: Confronting the Effects of Climate Change on Lake Tahoe.”

The summit is open to the public and will feature remarks from Senator Feinstein, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, Senator Dean Heller, Congressman Mark Amodei, and Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval. California Governor Jerry Brown will offer a keynote address.

The annual Summit shines a spotlight on the important restoration work being achieved through the Lake Tahoe Environmental Improvement Program,” said Julie Regan, External Affairs Chief for the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency. “Continuing the commitment to Lake Tahoe’s restoration is even more challenging in the face of reduced funding, climate change, and other threats.”
