25 Years Of Lake Tahoe Registration Plates!

The California Tahoe Conservancy will celebrate its 25th anniversary and the launch of the newly designed Lake Tahoe license plate Thursday, Sept. 16, with a party on the shores of the very lake it works so hard to preserve, protect and enhance.

The casual celebration will be from noon to 2 p.m. at Commons Beach and is free to the public. It will feature live music, food, speakers and commemorative gifts.

Since its inception, the conservancy has authorized more than $450 million, acquired 4,700 properties and facilitated hundreds of resource enhancement and public access projects throughout the California side of the Lake Tahoe Basin. Commons Beach is one of the agency’s signature projects.

In conjunction with the anniversary celebration, the conservancy will roll out its newly designed license plate. California drivers can be part of the continued efforts to protect this special place by purchasing a Lake Tahoe environmental license plate.

“This is our way of celebrating this milestone with the community,” said Patrick Wright, conservancy’s executive director. “It’s remarkable how much the conservancy has accomplished in 25 years. Looking back at what we and our partners have achieved, I am both excited and optimistic for the future of the Lake Tahoe Basin.”
