It’s a South Lake Tahoe landmark. The Red Hut Café on Highway 50 next to Meek’s Lumber.
It’s easy to see why this is a favorite local spot. Full of local character and charm, including Lake Tahoe’s favorite detective’s favorite breakfast, the Owen McKenna Omelette.
Download the free UC Davis Tahoe Environmental Research Center new Citizen Science Tahoe mobile app at CitizenScienceTahoe.org and help lake researchers by taking a few minutes to enter what you see at the beach, from algae to wildlife. Each observation automatically records the user’s location and the date and time.
Users can also add photos and their own comments, and they earn points for every observation made.
Science needs both sides of the story, so users are encouraged to report on what is good at the beach as well as anything that indicates problems, such as algae, shells, or litter.
Enjoy a great day outdoors while soaking up some knowledge about the beautiful area you call home with the Tahoe Institute for Natural Science (TINS).
TINS hosts several activities and events to bring Tahoe’s natural history, science, and conservation issues to the public through walks and talks, citizen science programs, or other special events such as the 2015 Tahoe Big Year.
