Despite COVID-19 keeping many from Tahoe beaches this season, somehow it didn’t seem to stop the trash from accumulating, but it also didn’t stop Keep Tahoe Blue volunteers from holding their annual beach cleanup
According to the League to Save Lake Tahoe’s Communications Manager Chris Joseph, the beach clean up kept things smaller this year to make sure social distancing practices were upheld for the safety of volunteers.

After a busy Fourth of July weekend, The League to Save Lake Tahoe set out on their annual beach cleanup. The League has been hosting the lake cleanup since 2013.
This year, The League hosted the same cleanup but had to follow safety precautions by instituting an RSVP policy, volunteer cap, social distancing and reducing sites to three different cleanup locations: Kings Beach, Nevada Beach and Regan Beach. Twelve out of the 136 volunteers went to remote locations.
