Tomorrow is World Mental Health Day.

Who is not feeling a bit stressed or anxious these days?

Part of keeping yourself or others healthy, safe and well in emergencies, disasters and stressful situations, is taking care of our emotional well-being. Today, let's commit to being there for each other, making time to check in on our friends, family and neighbors. Make a phone call, schedule a Zoom hangout, or mail a note or greeting card. Remember to care for yourself, too. Take care.

Lake Tahoe Fun Facts

The average daily evaporation of Lake Tahoe is half a billion gallons of water. This would meet the daily water needs of 5 million people, or enough to support the cities of San Francisco and Los Angeles! This fun fact comes from our friends at the UC Davis Tahoe Environmental Research Center. You can learn more about evaporation here.
