Accessible roadside inspection stations are located around the lake. Alpines Meadow Ski Resort, Northstar at Tahoe Resort, Spooner Summit and Homewood Ski Resort are a few of the boat inspection stations in Tahoe.

Everyone is invited to become a member of the Tahoe Keepers and help protect Tahoe’s trademark blue waters. Below are more reasons why it’s important to become a Tahoe Keeper.

  • It’s Free: It is free to become a member of the Tahoe Keepers. More importantly, those who are aware and regularly clean, drain and dry their boat and other watercraft are helping to keep Lake Tahoe’s waters pristine and free of aquatic invasive species.
  • It’s Easy: The online training is easy to follow and complete. Once members have registered to become a Tahoe Keeper and pass a brief quiz, they will receive Proof of Training Credentials as well as Tahoe Keeper decals to place on their watercraft or boat.
  • It Matters: Aquatic invasive species are harmful to Lake Tahoe, and other natural bodies of water, because they disrupt the natural food chain and the water’s ecosystem. If boats and watercraft are not properly inspected and cleaned after every use, AIS can cling and hide in rudders, hulls and paddles. In a short period of time, aquatic invasive species can multiply and damage boats and their gear. Once a body of water has become infested with AIS it is very costly and nearly impossible to extinguish.

Inside Knowledge: Some of the most threatening aquatic invasive species include quagga mussels, New Zealand mudsnails, and Eurasian watermilfoil and curlyleaf pondweed. They have the ability to rapidly multiply and once they have infested a body of water they are very expensive to remove.

The best way to keep Lake Tahoe pristine and free of AIS is through prevention and educational programs such as Tahoe Keepers.

Do's and Don'ts:

  • Do Become A Tahoe Keeper: It is easy and free to become a Tahoe Keeper. And if you live and play in the Lake Tahoe it is important to remember to help keep it blue and preserve it for future generations to enjoy.
  • Do Protect Your Favorite Place: It only takes a few extra minutes to clean, drain and dry your boat but the benefits are immeasurable. By taking responsibility of your watercraft you are helping to protect Lake Tahoe.
  • Don’t Neglect Drain Drying: Remove any plants or debris from the watercraft when you are cleaning and drying your boat or watercraft. Most aquatic invasive species can hide in debris and mussels can survive as long as 30 days out of water.
  • Don’t Forget To Spread The Word: The best way to protect Lake Tahoe is through education and spread of word. Become a Lake Tahoe Keeper and help spread awareness of the importance of cleaning, draining and drying your boat.
