Volunteers needed to help clean-up trash at Tahoe beaches after Fourth of July holiday
Lake Tahoe beaches will be packed full this Fourth of July holiday, but that is no excuse to leave your trash behind.
According to the U.S. Forest Service, trash and debris left behind after festivities is more than just a nuisance -- it can be harmful and even fatal to wildlife.
The Adopt-A-Beach program will take place on July 5 from 8:30 a.m. to noon.
In 2016, more than 1,600 pounds of trash and more than 7,700 cigarette butts were left behind on beautiful Tahoe shores following the Independence Day holiday, according to the League to Save Lake Tahoe.
Those interested in volunteering can show up to the following beaches:
- Nevada Beach
- Kings Beach
- Commons Beach (Tahoe City)
- Regan Beach
- Kiva Beach
