We’re proud to be able to partner with local organizations to ensure our beaches and trails stay clean after July 4 weekend! 👏 On July 5, our Ambassadors worked with Keep Tahoe Blue and Generation Green to clean up some of Tahoe’s East Shore beaches. They collected 85.9 pounds of trash, most of it from plastics or food packaging. Some interesting finds: an abandoned beach wagon, beef liver, and 3 cans of unopened cat food 😯 Learn more about our Ambassadors at the link in bio 🔗⁠
