Live at Lakeview beach cleanup

Every Monday morning, the producers of the Live at Lakeview Summer Music Series (On Course Events) gathers its staff and a few volunteers to clean up the beach, park, and surrounding neighborhood areas of Lakeview Commons. On average, the group collects approximately 15-25 lbs of trash each week.

After getting rained out with thunderstorms on Thursday, July 25th and being forced to move the concert down the street to Tep’s Villa Roma, the On Course Events crew remains dedicated to the weekly cleanups and invited Bruce Hernandez to join in with the Sand Sifter machine. This machine collected 165 lbs of trash and 30 lbs of Asian clam shells with two passes across the sand in about 1.5 hours. Volunteers collected another 35 lbs of trash by hand, throughout the morning.

Volunteers are encouraged to join the weekly beach cleanup efforts to keep our beaches litter free and to keep Tahoe blue. Those interested in joining can meet at Lakeview Commons every Monday morning through September 2nd at 10:00 am. Buckets, gloves, and trash bags will be provided.

Live at Lakeview returned to the beach last night with the Polyrhythmics, a hard-driving, modern world-beat orchestra from Seattle, WA. For more information go to Liveatlakeview.com.
