California State Parks at Lake Tahoe offer weekly livestreams to people sheltering at home during COVID-19 outbreak.
Due to California’s current shelter-in-place order, the public cannot visit their beloved state parks and beaches right now. However staff at Sugar Pine Point State Park, on Tahoe’s west shore, have quickly adapted to bring parks to folks at home through online live-streams.
The response has been successful so far, with one virtual attendee calling it “soul food” and many expressly thanking staff for offering the content.
If you would like to watch a live-stream from Lake Tahoe, all you must do is follow @castateparkstahoe on Instagram and watch out for notifications. Once you follow the account, you should receive an alert anytime a live broadcast begins.
Although California State Parks and Beaches remain closed to vehicular access at this time, watching in-park live-streams is a great way to glimpse features that you can visit and enjoy once restrictions have been lifted. Many other California State Parks also offer virtual content like live-streams and educational Zoom webinars.
