Volunteers remove 2,260 pounds of trash from Tahoe beaches

Lake Tahoe – Over 120 volunteers for the League to Save Lake Tahoe removed 2,260 pounds of trash from six of Tahoe’s most popular beaches on July 5, the day after tens of thousands of people flocked to the lake to enjoy the July 4th festivities. The debris represented almost 10 cubic yards, or a dump truck full, of trash. It included over 3,000 cigarette butts, 1,200 cans, 800 glass and plastic bottles, and 320 plastic bags.

“Tahoe’s beaches were choked with trash. We’re so inspired by the volunteers who came out on their holiday weekend to help,” said Community Engagement Manager Marilee Movius. “When we celebrate July 4th, part of what we’re celebrating is our beautiful country and our pristine lake. The enthusiasm for the lake was contagious the morning after the festivities. As the volunteer crews swept down the beaches, other beachgoers couldn’t resist joining in.”

 

The League has been hosting regular beach cleanups for over five years. This was the second annual Keep Tahoe Red, White & Blue Beach Cleanup hosted by the League on July 5. This year’s sites included Commons Beach in Tahoe City, Nevada Beach and Zephyr Shoals on the East Shore, and Kiva, Regan and El Dorado beaches on the South Shore for a total of about 3 miles of shoreline.

 

“The beaches that were cleaned represent less than 5 percent of Tahoe’s total shoreline, so we know a lot more needs to be done,” said Jesse Patterson, the League’s deputy director. “We hope to spread the message that we all have to pack out what we pack in. As we engage more of the Tahoe community in this important issue, we’re hoping that beach cleanups one day won’t be necessary.”

The 120 volunteers came from local communities to Reno, Sacramento, the Bay Area and Southern California.

 

The League would like to thank the following businesses for sponsoring a cleanup site by providing refreshments and support to the volunteers: The Ridge Tahoe, Lake of the Sky Outfitters, The North Face, Grass Roots Natural Foods, SUP Tahoe, and Willard’s Sport Shop.

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
