Conserving A Unique Piece Of Lake Tahoe
Due to your stewardship and conservation efforts, the Tahoe Yellow Cress has been removed from the Federal List of Endangered Species. But that doesn't mean we should stop caring.
This unassuming little plant is found only on the sandy and rocky beaches of Lake Tahoe - nowhere else in the word is this unique plant found! If you see this small plant please let it flourish, please do not trample or pick it. Help protect one of Tahoe's wonders. For more information on Tahoe Yellow Cress, go to the Tahoe Yellow Cress website at tahoeyellowcress.org.
NOTE: TLOA is a signatory to the 2013 TYC Conservation Strategy. One of our goals for this strategy is working toward streamlined permitting and mitigation.
NEVADA RESIDENTS: Become a Steward of Tahoe Yellow Cress
Are you a Nevada lakefront homeowner? There is currently an opportunity for Nevada lakefront homeowners to participate in the Tahoe Yellow Cress Stewardship Project. The Stewardship Project, established in 2010 in cooperation with the Nevada Tahoe Conservation District (NTCD), has provided numerous lakefront homeowners with information and recommendations on plant protection. Participation in this program is entirely voluntary, non-regulatory, and confidential, thus the project is completely stewardship based. All suggestions provided by NTCD can be implemented at your own discretion. Join the NTCD in protecting this unique piece of Tahoe! Contact Dana Olson at 775-586-1610 ext. 25 or firstname.lastname@example.org to participate in this stewardship opportunity.
