Boys & Girls Club to help clean up Zephyr Cove Beach

Tribune staff report

The Boys & Girls Club of Lake Tahoe will help clean up Zephyr Cove Beach today.

In honor of Kids to Parks Day, a day developed by the National Park Trust, children from the club will pick up trash and hear an educational talk, according to Harrah’s and Harveys Lake Tahoe spokesman John Packer.

Jane Flavin, recruitment and training manager for Caesars Entertainment at Harrah’s and Harveys Lake Tahoe will talk to the children about the environment and how littering is a bad thing, Packer said.

The children will receive a T-shirt with Buddy Bison, the official mascot of the National Park Trust, on it.

The cleanup, which is also part of Harrah’s green efforts, will take place from 1:30-3:30 p.m.

“It will be a fun afternoon at the beach,” Packer said. “It’s a good thing to keep Tahoe clean.”

Anyone is welcome to help with the cleanup effort, but there will only be enough shirts for Boys & Girls Club members, Packer said.
