72 Mile Clean Up

The 72 mile cleanup was a dream that became reality made possible by donors like Tahoe Blue Vodka, Tahoe Fund, Nevada Division of State Lands, Vail’s Epic Promise and a number of other grant giving organizations. This funding support was bolstered by the 136 volunteer community members who dedicated their time to this cause and ultimately helped us remove nearly 25,000 lbs of submerged litter from Lake Tahoe.

Survey Dives

In an effort to expand our mission to other areas in the country a few members of our team performed research dives in six different lakes in California and Arizona. The data collected from these dives allows us to determine if a lake is in need of a scuba clean up as well as provide proof of purpose for any grants or funding needed for the project. Data collected from these survey dives directly guided our organization to adding Fallen Leaf and June Lake to our plans for 2022.

Thanks to our donors
