The Local Lens – Celebrating Earth Day

April 17, 2024 | Linda Offerdahl

Here’s what’s going on:

The BIG event is Tahoe Truckee Earth Day at Palisades this Saturday. Learn about watershed health, forest health, alternative energy, and more from vendors while enjoying lots of great music from local bands. UNR@Lake Tahoe offers an alternative event complete with music and vendors on Friday, April 19, starting at noon. This is a good reason to go on campus and mix it up with the college kids. If you have an hour free on Saturday, Incline Library’s SaturYay project is building hydroponic gardens from recycled materials. The Rotary Clubs are partnering with Mountain Hardware for a lithium battery recycling collection. 



Once a year, the K-12 public schools put on a joint concert. Please support them by coming to this event and/or donate money to CYMBAL, the music boosters group that provides refreshments and gives financial support for instruments and supplies.

This fabulous FUN community event is back on May 3 and 4. Tickets are now on sale at Inclinestarfollies.org.


The Incline High School team just competed in the national We The People contest. They are the 2024 Division C winner!  It is testimony to teachers Amy Henderson and Milt Hyams and the commitment to the strong academics available at our local public school….and the hard work of a lot of kids!!

NEW DEVELOPMENTS with the Waldorf Astoria Lake Tahoe

In case you missed the press release this week, find it in IVCBA’s news under Local Media and the Tahoe Daily Tribune. The financing for the project is getting restructured; the developers remain committed to the project. 


Thanks to IVCBA’s Julie and Kristin, everyone knows that Restaurant Week started on Monday. I began my culinary week at Big Water Grille Monday night. It looked as busy as some weekend nights. I am not a food critic, but I would go back to have another go at their beef short ribs. I had lunch on Tuesday at Sunshine Deli for their classic hot beef sandwich, complete with mashed potatoes. Where will you eat this week?!
