Tour 1: Paddling Toward Sustainability
Come and explore "A Paddling Route through Paradise" with representatives from the Lake Tahoe Water Trail committee, Tahoe Adventure Company and the Wild Goose Restaurant. The Lake Tahoe Water Trail Project, initiated in 2003 by an all-volunteer group of people, was developed with a set of common goals aimed at creating an innovative new model for sustainable tourism in the Lake Tahoe Basin. Participants will paddle the blue waters of Lake Tahoe on a guided tour by Tahoe Adventure Company, known for their innovative Lodge to Lodge Kayak getaway along the Lake Tahoe Water Trail. The Tour will end at the exceptional, lakefront Wild Goose Restaurant, known for its Sustainability Initiative Programs in its building design and regional food movement. Participants will enjoy a hosted wine and cheese offering while learning about various sustainable applications.
