Several local volunteers helped Soroptimist International of South Lake Tahoe with their clean-up project on Coastal Clean-up Day. Members of the Soroptimist Environmental Committee organized the project, which took place along the Upper Truckee River near River Road in South Lake Tahoe.

Trash was picked up along the shore and fished out of the river on both sides of Lake Tahoe Boulevard. Items that were recyclable were separated from garbage and taken to the recycling center.

More than 20 bags of trash and recyclable items were collected from the area.

The annual cleanup is one of the many projects in which the Soroptimist Environment Committee participates.
