Leave No Trace

Please remember, with to-go food, comes extra waste. So as you indulge in the tastes of the region paired with the perfect outdoor ambiance, keep Tahoe beautiful and leave no trace. Here are some tips to keep in mind:

  • USE PROPER RECEPTACLES. North Lake Tahoe has animal proof trash and recycle bins around the region. Make sure your garbage ends up inside.  If one is full, please find another.  We don’t want the wildlife to have your leftovers.
  • PACK IT IN, PACK IT OUT. It’s a simple yet effective way to keep our nature pristine and is a guiding principle of Leave No Trace.  If you’re taking your food on a hike, bring a reusable bag to store your waste after eating and until you get to a proper receptacle.
  • BE MINDFUL ABOUT FOOD STORAGE. Tahoe is rich with an array of wildlife. And who can blame them for finding it hard to resist the delectable smells of our culinary delights. So as a best practice, refrain from storing food in your car when you venture outdoors.  And adhere to trash regulations if you’re in a vacation rental – use the bear box and make sure to lock it.
