Science exhibits open at visitor center

 

North Tahoe Chamber

UC Davis Tahoe Environmental Research Center recently opened exhibits designed to educate the public about the Lake Tahoe environment and destination stewardship concepts at the North Lake Tahoe Visitor Center in Tahoe City.

The free exhibits at the visitor center include an interactive microplastics display and a sandbox that gives visitors the tactile experience of creating a watershed and understanding how it works. A touchscreen display features Tahoe In Depth information about the weather, lake conditions, activities, river conditions and Citizen Science, and a video exhibit offers 10 educational videos. The visitor center is open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. | northtahoecommunityalliance.com
