Boat inspections have begun! And no, your Explorer 200 doesn’t count.

Boats that engage in promiscuous behavior without cleaning up after put Tahoe’s waters, and native species, at risk. Asian clams and Quagga mussels are a few invasive species to recently take over lake waters.

As they say—don’t be a fool, clean your tool.
