OUR EFFORTS AS TAHOE AMBASSADORS
Lake Tahoe Waterman Association was born in 2010 with a passion from both Anik and Jay Wild for Paddling and Lake Tahoe. Founded by Elite Athletes, the initial premises were to get kids on the water enjoying human-powered paddle sports. Since our 501c3 Non-Profit Organization evolved with the mission to be a steward of the land and the lake, promote human-powered watercraft education and safety. Additionally, to work with a network of organizations with the mission to conserve and protect our playground that is Lake Tahoe and its public access. Our organization is home to Team Tahoe Waterman and Junior Waterman educational programs.
ENVIRONMENTAL TAHOE CONSERVANCY
Part of Lake Tahoe Waterman Association’s mission is to be a steward of the land and the lake, this mission has been satisfied with LTWA being the keepers of Patton Landing Beach, participating in the conservation of public access to Lake Tahoe (for humans and their four-legged friends!) LTWA is collaborating with Watermans Landing in the maintenance and upkeep of the property. We schedule ongoing beach clean-ups, routine maintenance of the natural landscape, and maintenance of the facility and grounds that are part of the California Tahoe Conservancy land at Patton Beach in Carnelian Bay, California.
What does Sustainability mean for a Tahoe Waterman?
It requires that we see the world as an integrated system that connects businesses to society and the environment through both space and time. A mindset that we value and want to share with the next generation and our community.
