Tahoe Fund Donates $10,000 for Lake Restoration Project

Posted: Updated:

The Tahoe Fund, a nonprofit organization, donated $10,000 to the Lake Tahoe Resource Team in support of the Third Creek and Incline Creek watershed project. The grant finances a pedestrian bridge over Incline Creek to allow for safe, stabilized foot traffic across both creeks and to diminish stream bank erosion.

"This bridge is a wonderful example of how we can come together to create a Tahoe that balances our natural environment and our recreational use of this amazing outdoor playground," said Amy Berry, CEO of the Tahoe Fund.

The Incline Village General Improvement District (IVGID), the US Army Corps of Engineers and the Nevada Division of State Lands completed the first two phases of this collaborative interagency project in 2009 and 2010. Portions of Third Creek were restored, culverts were replaced and new bridges were built. The final phase includes stream restoration improvements on Third Creek from Lakeshore Drive to Lake Tahoe, and on Third and Incline Creeks from Incline Way to State Route 28.

 

The mission of Tahoe Fund is to restore and enhance the extraordinary natural environment of the Lake Tahoe Basin by building broad support and funding for projects and programs that increase the enjoyment of the region for current and future generations. The Fund focuses grants on the core areas of conservation, recreation and education/stewardship.
