Engrave a bear, fund a trail

Tahoe Fund

Twenty-five, new engraved bears are now hanging from the railings in Tahoe City’s Heritage Plaza through a partnership with Tahoe Fund, Placer County and Tahoe City Public Utility District to raise money for trails in North Lake Tahoe. Since launching the new program, more than $100,000 has been raised.

There are still opportunities to purchase and personalize bear plaques available in two sizes. For $5,000, the Mama Bear plaque measures 13 inches tall by 20 inches wide and has space for a 40-to-45 character message. For $2,500, the Baby Bear plaque measures 8 inches tall by 12 inches wide and has space for a 20-to-25 character message.

Tahoe Fund also offers engraved trout plaques and bear pavers along the 3-mile-long East Shore Trail from Incline Village, Nev., to Sand Harbor. | tahoefund.org
