Parasol offers a variety of methods for donors to contribute to the causes they are passionate about. The Lake Tahoe Science Fund was started by a donor that is passionate about the UC Davis Tahoe Environmental Research Center. This fund will be used to support TERC’s science education and research at Lake Tahoe and its watershed.
TERC’s research, teaching and outreach promote understanding as well as conservation of the Lake Tahoe Basin for future generations to enjoy. TERC provides engaging exhibits, interactive hands-on educational activities and events for all ages around the Lake Tahoe Basin including a Children’s Environmental Science Day, Science Expo, Family Science Day, Watershed Tours, Lectures Workshops and Conferences. TERC also has research vessels to study the lake’s clarity, physics, chemistry and biology and provide critical scientific information to understand, restore and sustain the Lake Tahoe Basin and other systems worldwide.
Donations to the Lake Tahoe Science Fund directly support TERC’s work in the Tahoe Basin, providing valuable information for improving and sustaining our Tahoe gem, greatly benefitting our communities now and into the future.
