League to Save Lake TahoeDuring the League to Save Lake Tahoe's 12th annual Tahoe Forest Stewardship Day on Sept. 12, volunteers restore a section of General Creek by removing an abandoned beaver dam, which was restricting flow and increasing bank erosion during the spring runoff.

This year’s Tahoe Forest Stewardship Day was a huge success, with more than a hundred volunteers coming from all around the Tahoe Basin.

Volunteers contributed to the health of Tahoe’s forests in and around Ed Z’berg Sugar Pine Point State Park by restoring a section of General Creek, reducing forest fuel loads, and restoring trails that were contributing to sediment runoff.

The League to Save Lake Tahoe would like to thank all the volunteers and participants who helped to make this year’s event a success.
