"Tahoe’s Most un-Wanted" posters available
February 3, 2012
SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. – This winter, the Tahoe Resource Conservation District launched a Facebook contest in support of its “Tahoe’s Most un-Wanted” campaign in order to collaborate with community members for its series of educational posters.
The wild-west themed posters are intended to help residents and visitors identify some of the most pressing threats to the Lake Tahoe Basin, as well as what people can do to help.
Community-identified threats to Tahoe included pollution from trash, traffic, leaf blowers, invasive fish, fire danger, homes without bear bins and more, according to a statement from the conservation district.
“By reaching out to the community for ideas Tahoe RCD was able to identify additional topics for the campaign, while also bringing traffic and some great conversations to our Facebook page. There were lots of creative ideas submitted,” said Sarah Ford, conservation planner at the Tahoe RCD, in the statement.
Tahoe’s Most un-Wanted posters available for display include “Aquatic Invasive Species,” “Terrestrial Invasive Weeds,” “Sediment from Runoff,” and the most recent poster, “Nutrients from Fertilizers and Pesticides.”
Residents, teachers, visitors and organizations are welcome to pick up posters at the Tahoe Resource Conservation District offices at 870 Emerald Bay Road or by contacting Pete Brumis at email@example.com.
