A fun way to engage with Lake Tahoe!

I’ve love using this citizen science app as a way to learn more about the Lake Tahoe Basin and contribute to ongoing research about the lake. I’ve been coming here for years and enjoy now being able to take note of changes in things I see like algae and water clarity!
