I want you to be able to bring your kids to Tahoe and experience the same clarity that you had as a child.

Dear Erica and Matthew,

Tahoe has always been our favorite place, and I so love spending our summers up there. I love that we walk and bike everywhere, I love the trailheads all around our neighborhood, and I love spending the day paddle boarding into town.  To keep Tahoe the place we love we must continue to support organizations like Sierra Watch that are fighting the Squaw and Martis Valley developments. As a family, we must continue to Keep Squaw True!!! The Tahoe Basin and the clarity of our beloved lake are at stake if we continue to allow huge developments into the basin. I want you to be able to bring your kids to Tahoe and experience the same clarity that you had as a child.
