The middle schoolers at the Lake Tahoe School in Incline Village have officially adopted the Tahoe East Shore Trail in partnership with Incline Village General Improvement District and Nevada State Parks. At least once a month, this group will walk the entire path to clean up litter and dog poop left behind by trail users or washed ashore from windy days.

With supplies provided by IVGID, the kids picked up trash and more than 20 bags of dog poop along the path on Wednesday, February 26th. They are clearly #1 at picking up #2, but would really prefer dog owners be more responsible and pick up after their own pets. We can’t stress it enough: if it’s your dog, then it’s your doody!

According to Lake Tahoe School middle school teacher, Patrick Fleming, “We strive to instill a sense of community and service in our students. They love spending a beautiful day on the path helping to keep it clean. Along the way they are learning valuable lessons about stewardship and the Tahoe environment.”

Huge thanks to the Lake Tahoe School Bobcats for taking care of the East Shore Trail!
