Circumnavigate Lake Tahoe for Science

Join UC Davis Tahoe Environmental Research Center (TERC) for the 2nd annual Circumnavigate Lake Tahoe event. Whether by kayak, canoe, or paddleboard, we will all paddle Lake Tahoe in support of the Citizen Science Tahoe project. Using the app we will collect valuable water quality, algal growth, and microplastics data during this excursion. We will also be discussing the current research at Lake Tahoe. All participants are responsible for bringing their own watercraft, personal protective equipment (flotation device while on the water and a mask while on land), food, beverages, and planning their own transportation to/from the departure and arrival sites. Cleaned, drained & dried watercraft only. Visit Tahoe's Self-Inspections for training for canoes, kayaks, paddleboards and other hand-launched watercraft. Please download the Citizen Science Tahoe App from www.CitizenScienceTahoe.org prior to joining if you would like to contribute some valuable data over the course of your paddle.
