App helps find more than 50 Tahoe beaches around Lake Tahoe
The Tahoe Fund will once again promote the Tahoe Beaches App to help beach-goers find their way to more than 50 public beaches around Lake Tahoe this summer. The app is also built to help spread out the crowds and provide an opportunity for people to discover new beaches while learning ways to care for Lake Tahoe.
“When we launched the Tahoe Beaches App last summer, we received great feedback that people were now finding beaches they had never known existed before,” said Tahoe Fund CEO Amy Berry. “With record temperatures and visitors predicted for this summer, we hope more people will download the app and discover new ways to cool off in the beautiful waters of Lake Tahoe.”
The app, available in iTunes and Google Play, allows visitors to plan their Tahoe experience with images and details about beach amenities, including barbecues, boat rentals, pet restrictions, and public transportation. With more than 50 public beaches, the app allows users to plan their Tahoe experience from home or while traveling around the Lake. Twitter feeds enable real time information from the public agencies managing the beaches. Users can post their favorite beaches to Facebook and invite family and friends to join them. The Tahoe Beaches App was developed by the Tahoe Fund and co-funded by the California Tahoe Conservancy through the Lake Tahoe License Plate Program. Seven public agencies collaborated to develop it, integrating public beach information across their organizations to get information to their users. The partners include: California Tahoe Conservancy, California State Parks, Tahoe City PUD, North Tahoe PUD, Nevada Division of State Parks, the U.S. Forest Service and Tahoe Transportation District.
“The Conservancy has worked with our partners for nearly 30 years to increase public access to Tahoe’s incredible beaches,” said Patrick Wright, executive director of the Tahoe Conservancy. “We hope that this app continues to encourage people to bring their friends and family to enjoy the beautiful beaches we have worked so hard to create.”
The Tahoe Beaches App is available on both Apple and Android phones and is available for free in their respective app stores. To learn more or to download the app, go to http://www.tahoepublicbeaches.com.
