INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. — Clean Up the Lake, renowned for their successful 72-mile cleanup project around the shores of Lake Tahoe, has announced the inauguration of its Environmental Dive Center at Lake Tahoe.
The Environmental Dive Center will be a hybrid between a conservation dive school and an environmental science center, and will be located in Incline Village. The initiative marks a significant leap in the fight against all litter and aquatic invasive species in and around Lake Tahoe.
“Clean Up The Lake is striving to create a more sustainable future not only through cleanup efforts, but also through advocacy & preventative action and most importantly, a transformative educational program based at the environmental dive center” said Clean Up the Lake founder & CEO Colin West. “The center will be the first of its kind.”
