Here at Homewood High & Dry Marina, we are committed to being good environmental stewards. We want to make sure we are doing our part to protect and preserve the places where we live, play, and work. From finding ways to lower our emissions to supporting efforts to clean up litter and training our staff to identify invasive species we’re always looking to improve our relationship with the environment.
During the summer of 2021 Homewood Marina, in partnership with Ingenity Electric, Superior Boat Repair & Sales, and Tahoe Fund installed the first electric boat charging station on Lake Tahoe along with a network of eFoil chargers. The addition of electric charging infrastructure brought the world’s first all-electric watersports boat to Lake Tahoe – the Nautique GS22E.
Homewood High & Dry Marina has been a certified Clean Marina since 2007. That means that our staff is trained in best practices for preventing and cleaning up pollution that has the potential to contaminate our waterways.
We’re proud to support Clean up the Lake in its efforts to remove trash from Lake Tahoe. In partnership with our sister property West Shore Cafe, we are providing buoy storage for the Clean up the Lake crew to use as a base as their dive team works to remove trash along the West Shore. This will allow the team to save time transporting boats and gear so they can focus more of their efforts on trash removal.
In addition to being a Clean Marina, the Homewood High & Dry Marina team is also trained to recognize and report aquatic invasive species that threaten the health of Lake Tahoe. Through the Eyes on the Lake program our team members are able to act as citizen scientists, identifying invasive species such as Eurasian watermilfoil and curlyleaf pondweed.
You too can join the Eyes on the Lake program and help keep Lake Tahoe Blue.
