Gov. Jerry Brown And Vice President Al Gore Attending Annual Lake Tahoe Summit

Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) are also scheduled to attend Annual Lake Tahoe Summit.



The summit will examine Lake Tahoe restoration and sustainability efforts.

Since the first Presidential Forum in 1997, federal, state and local leaders have come together to discuss the importance of protecting and restoring Lake Tahoe. In 1997, then-Vice President Gore was instrumental in gathering stakeholders and bringing much needed attention to the problems facing the Lake Tahoe Basin. We are honored to welcome him back this year to discuss A Clean Lake Legacy: Preserving Tahoe and the Environment for Future Generations.

The gathering on the shores of the lake that spans the border of the two states "will examine restoration and sustainability efforts at Lake Tahoe,” according to a release from the office of Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.). Feinstein will speak at the conference.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) is backing legislation to provide federal funding and permission for a number of projects aimed at protecting the lake’s famous clarity and protect threatened species in the area.
