Circumnavigate Lake Tahoe for Science
April 5, 2023 | Member Submitted
A fundraising event to support science around the lake and beyond while kayaking Lake Tahoe in seven day trip segments.
The Tahoe Environmental Research Center (TERC) at UC Davis, has monitored Lake Tahoe for over 60 years, amassing a unique record of change for one of the world’s most beautiful yet vulnerable lakes.
TERC will be hosting our third annual Circumnavigate Lake Tahoe for Science (TERC CIRC 3), a seven-day kayaking trip around the lake starting June 19 – June 25, 2023. Paddlers will have an opportunity to learn about Lake Tahoe’s ecology, geology and emerging challenges. TERC’s scientific experts will accompany paddlers to illustrate the science being used to restore Lake Tahoe.
Many people have paddled Lake Tahoe, but this event is unique. In addition to each day’s 6-13 miles of spectacular shoreline paddling, you will get to see, share and learn about Lake Tahoe’s ecology, geology and emerging challenges. TERC’s scientific experts will illustrate the science being used to restore Lake Tahoe.
Come for just a day or two, or join the ranks of the epic few who have completed the entire circumnavigation. Space is limited! A description of each day’s route will be provided during registration.
