A Brief Bit of Information About Us
The Tahoe Heritage Foundation was founded in 1996 to enable a public/private partnership with the US Department of Agriculture that manages Forest Service restoration projects and interpretive activities at the Tallac Historic Site and the Visitor Center adjacent to the southern shore of Lake Tahoe. While the Tallac Historic Site and the Visitor Center are the flagship partnerships of the Tahoe Heritage Foundation, over the years the Tahoe Heritage Foundation has formed partnerships with other public entities for specific projects. Current partnerships include the United States Forest Service, the California Tahoe Conservancy, the Tahoe/Bikal Institute; past partnerships were with California State Parks and the City of South Lake Tahoe. The Tahoe Heritage Foundation also supports the efforts of other groups in the Tahoe Basin that are engaged in restoration and interpretive activities such as the Vikingsholm Foundation and the Friends of Glen Alpine Springs. The Tahoe Heritage Foundation is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization and is managed by a volunteer Board of Directors.
The mission of the Tahoe Heritage Foundation is to preserve and protect the cultural heritage and natural history resources of the Lake Tahoe Basin through restoration, interpretation, and education.
