Events Calendar and Programs

The Tahoe Heritage Foundation works with the US Forest Service and other partner organizations to try to achieve a balance between the need to fund restoration and operations and the desire to encourage the public to participate in the many interpretive and educational opportunities available at sponsored sites.  Some events and programs are free, have modest fees, a few are higher priced and are clearly fundraisers.  The majority of our programs and events are conducted in conjunction with the US Forest Service, Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit at our flagship location, the Pope-Baldwin Estates, Tallac Historic Site.  In addition we support a variety of activities in the greater Tahoe Basin.  Two of those that are currently active are Winter Trek and Generation & Mobility Green.  Past partnerships include the Pony Express Group and Classic Antique Boat Society for one-time events.

Winter Trek 2018

This environmental education program teaches students about winter-adapting animals, how to identify their tracks and habitat, basin geology, water conservation and use of Forest Service lands.  Fifth grade classes join with a Forest Service guide assisted by volunteers.  They spend a morning on the mountain at Heavenly Valley,  going from place to place on old-fashioned wood snowshoes.

Gen-Green 

Generation Green Summer Program

The youth of today are the hope for the future.  Tahoe Heritage Foundation joins with a variety of organizations in the Tahoe Basin to fund programs for high school students each summer.  These students learn leadership skills and the fundamentals of resource protection.  Often these students continue in natural resource fields of study, returning to be stewards on public lands.
