Tahoe leaders and congressional representatives will gather at Sand Harbor Nevada State Park on August 16 for the 26th annual Lake Tahoe Summit. The summit brings a national spotlight to issues facing Lake Tahoe and its communities and strengthens the federal, state, local, and private sector partnerships that have worked to restore and protect Lake Tahoe since the inaugural summit in 1997.
The event will be hosted by U.S. Senator Jacky Rosen (D, Nev.), who has invited White House National Climate Advisor Gina McCarthy to give the keynote address. McCarthy is tasked with coordinating the Biden administration’s domestic climate agenda and previously served in the Obama Administration. This year’s summit theme is “Protecting Lake Tahoe’s Future,” and will be a chance review the accomplishments of more than 80 organizations working together through the Lake Tahoe Environmental Improvement Program and seeks out Tahoe’s most pressing priorities and resource needs.
Over the past 25 years, the Environmental Improvement Program has completed more than 750 projects and invested more than $2.6 billion in watershed restoration, stormwater management, forest fuel reduction, and aquatic invasive species management, to name only a few priority areas. As one of the most comprehensive landscape conservation programs in the nation, the Environmental Improvement Program needs continued investment and will remain vital to adapt to new threats and confront the climate crisis. We hope you will join us at the 2022 Lake Tahoe Summit and play a part in protecting Tahoe’s future.
In-person registration for the event closes on August 10, and the event will live-streamed on Vimeo for those who are unable to attend in person.
