Learn about native plants, birds and animals at the Native Species Festival presented by the USFS in June at the Taylor Creek Visitor Center.

Visit educational booths set up by public agencies and nonprofits to learn more about Lake Tahoe’s native plants and animals, including black bears, bats, beaver, and Tahoe yellow cress.

The fun-filled activities will be held at the Taylor Creek Visitor Center located three miles north of the Highway 89/50 junction in South Lake Tahoe.

Residents and visitors are invited to attend this free family event from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Taylor Creek Visitor Center, located three miles north of South Lake Tahoe on Highway 89.

This popular local festival is a great way to spend the day outdoors and learn about the native species of the Lake Tahoe Basin. Attend walks led by field professionals and local students to learn about our native Tahoe Yellow Cress, the invasive Eurasian Watermilfoil, the Basin’s native Lahontan Cutthroat Trout and the invasive American Bullfrog.

The festival will offer different educational booths from various public and non-profit agencies, featuring topics like the American black bear, native bats, the American beaver, and Tahoe yellow cress. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service will return this year with the popular large fish tank, which holds native Lahontan Cutthroat Trout, and the giant inflatable fish.

We live in a special place. A place so beautiful it nurtures the soul and creative spirit. A place so breathtaking it inspires conservation. A mountain culture that masters the fine art of living. Welcome to this place we call home. Welcome to Lake Tahoe. Meet the local artists, individuals, businesses and events that define our unique mountain culture and embody Tahoe's creative and entrepreneurial spirit.
