Fireworks were launched, picnics were had, sparklers were ignited, and fun was shared all throughout South Lake Tahoe on the 4th of July. This left our beaches quite messy after the celebration–but no fear, Keep Tahoe Blue was here!
Throughout the morning and along six different beaches, there was a total of:
- 320 volunteers out there with trash bags and gloved-hands
- 1,676 pounds of trash collected and sorted
- 5,242 cigarette butts removed from the depths of the sand
- 6,357 pieces of plastic found and sent to be recycled

A huge thanks to all who came out to participate! We are already looking forward to providing refreshments, raffle prizes, and smiles again next year.
