Earth Day

At The Village at Squaw Valley
on April 20, 2019 – 11am to 5pm

“On April 22, 1970, 20 million Americans took to the streets, parks and auditoriums to demonstrate on behalf of a healthy, sustainable environment. The first Earth Day led to the creation of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the passage of the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act and the Endangered Species Act. In 1990, Earth Day went global, with 200 million people from 141 nations participating. Earth Day is now widely celebrated around the world as a collective expression of public will to create a sustainable society and inspires changes that bring ongoing benefits to the community.” – Earth Day Network

The goal of The Tahoe Truckee Earth Day Festival, a volunteer run, non-profit event is to recognize, celebrate and promote the region’s unique beauty and to educate the public regarding how to preserve and protect our local and global natural resources. The Tahoe Truckee Earth Day Foundation is also working to increase the effort around solid waste management and will continue to work towards its goal of hosting a Zero Waste and Carbon Neutral event.

Our local Earth Day celebration is one of the largest environmental education events in the area. The event provides local residents and visitors an opportunity to learn about the various environmental issues that affect the North Lake Tahoe – Truckee Region. The North Lake Tahoe/Truckee Earth Day festival is hosted primarily by volunteers of the Tahoe Earth Day Foundation, a local non-profit, with the support of other non-profits, local agencies, businesses and dedicated supporters.

  • The Saturday event is free to the public to attend.
  • T.A.R.T. will be offering free transportation from the event back to North Lake Tahoe, Incline Village and Truckee.
  • Zero Waste Event: Tahoe Truckee Earth Day strives to be a Zero Waste event. This is supported in full by Incline Village’s Waste Not program.
