League to Save Lake Tahoe launched a freshly redesigned website July 1 as a tool for community members to learn about Lake Tahoe, its threats and how they can get involved in efforts to Keep Tahoe Blue.

“Lake Tahoe is a national treasure, welcoming millions of visitors from across the country and from around the world,” League executive director Darcie Goodman Collins said. “So many visitors want more information about how they can help protect Lake Tahoe, which makes tools like our website so important.”

The League’s new website was designed by the team at Baunfire, a San Jose-based digital agency with a strong focus on user-experience and interactive design. As part of its long-standing commitment to the League’s efforts to protect Lake Tahoe, Baunfire donated its staff time for the entire web design project. The new Keep Tahoe Blue website is now fully responsive, making it easier to navigate for users on smart phones and tablets.

The League’s website continues to provide visitors key information about Lake Tahoe, its Basin, Tahoe-area animals and plants, and the current threats to the lake. Visitors can learn more about the League’s campaigns to protect the lake, and can take an active role by signing up to volunteer for one of the League’s citizen science and community engagement programs, by purchasing Keep Tahoe Blue merchandise to support its programs, or by becoming a member of the League.

League to Save Lake Tahoe, also known by the slogan “Keep Tahoe Blue,” is Tahoe’s oldest and largest nonprofit environmental advocacy organization. The League is dedicated to community engagement and education, and collaborating to find solutions to Tahoe’s environmental challenges. The League’s main campaigns include combating pollution, promoting restoration, tackling invasive species and protecting Tahoe’s shoreline.
