Protect, Preserve, Prevent
Protect: TLOA ensures that if necessary, private shoreline property rights will be defended.
Preserve: TLOA is committed to preserving the environment. TLOA is a signatory to the Tahoe Yellow Cress (TYC) Conservation Strategy Agreement for the next 10 years that promotes TYC stewardship. This Agreement features protection of this unique little plant along with a strong stewardship component. TLOA believes in appropriate goose management in Lake Tahoe.
Prevent: TLOA supports the prevention and control of harmful aquatic invasive species (AIS) from entering Lake Tahoe. TLOA board members helped to fund and launch the very first AIS Boat inspections at Lake Tahoe.
TLOA is a partner in the AIS Prevention Challenge, a Collaborative Agreement with the League to Save Lake Tahoe, Tahoe Regional Planning Agency, and Tahoe Fund which has launched an Implementation Plan made up of strategies for the removal and control of AIS in Lake Tahoe over the next 3 to 5 years. The plan consists of three categories of invasive species and control actions for each with the goal of reducing the overall expansion of AIS. This is an important private-public initiative.
