The 27th annual Lake Tahoe Summit will be held on August 9, 2023, at the Kings Beach Recreation Area from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.

This year’s summit will highlight Tahoe’s Environmental Improvement Program, a successful bipartisan, bi-state collaboration among local, state, federal, and private entities. It will also examine the challenges that lie ahead in the face of climate change and increasingly unpredictable weather whiplash, as well as the growing demands on regional infrastructure.

U.S. Senator Alex Padilla of California is this year’s host and has been a key champion for Lake Tahoe in the U.S. Senate. In 2021, Padilla led the 25th annual Tahoe Summit and launched the first virtual exhibit to highlight the pioneering conservation work of the Lake Tahoe Summit.
