Become a Tahoe Keeper

Become a Tahoe Keeper
This amazing program is something that you can do to help keep the lake crystal clear and healthy for years to come. The Invasive Species Program (Lake Tahoe EIP) has created a program to learn about and become certified to inspect watercraft for invasive species that pose a threat to the clarity and health of the lake. Protecting our resource from foreign plants and animals is essential to the longevity of our natural resources and becoming a certified keeper gives the public the power to help the cause.
