Have just a few hours? A planned event or scheduled clean-up day is perfect for you! Whether you are a local or only visiting for a short while, this is a limited time commitment with maximum rewards. Join our community during high beach-impact times (like the week after July 4th and after Labor Day), when we will be out on our local beaches, cleaning up after the party!

These are the coordinated efforts for clean-up days and informative events around Lake Tahoe. Check back, as we will update this page as events are added.

Annual Keep Tahoe Red, White & Blue Beach Cleanups

After the July 4th festivities, our beaches are thrashed with trash. This trash can hurt wildlife and lake clarity. Be a part of the solution and help us this day to keep our beaches clean. We will provide refreshments, cleanup bags, gloves, and hand sanitizer. Please bring your reusable water bottle, gloves if you have them, sunscreen, your friends and family, and a smile! Each attendee will receive a raffle ticket for great prizes from Keep Tahoe Blue and our partners. For questions, please email events@keeptahoeblue.org. 

Date:  July 5

Time:  8:30am-12pm

We all enjoy the traditional Tahoe South July 4 and Labor Day fireworks shows which receive national accolades for the spectacular displays!  However, with so many people having fun, it’s important we follow up with beach clean-up days.  We appreciate your support in reducing the impact of holiday beach use after these events!
