The Covid-19 pandemic has hit Tahoe's economy hard. Thousands of local residents have lost jobs, some of which will not return. Small businesses throughout the Basin are under tremendous strain. The tourism economy has ground to a halt. Anxiety is high.
This moment calls for an urgent response to confront the scale of the problem through an amplification and acceleration of Tahoe’s environmental economy, in a way that provides hope and real benefits to Tahoe residents and communities.
