Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit

Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit

The Lake Tahoe Basin is a geologic feature of the northern Sierra Nevada. Aside from its principal feature, Lake Tahoe, much of the land bordering the lake is administered by the United States government as the Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit, a patchwork of public and private lands. The Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit (LTBMU) straddles the state borders of California and Nevada, encompassing approximately 191,000 acres (773 kmĀ²) of National Forest system lands, ranging in altitude above sea level from 6,225 feet at lake level to 10,881 feet at Freel Peak.

The USDA Forest Service established the Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit in 1973. The name of the Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit reflects a unique sort of National Forest, as unique as the resources of the Tahoe Basin.

Famous quotes containing the words unit, management and/or lake:

    During the Suffragette revolt of 1913 I ... [urged] that what was needed was not the vote, but a constitutional amendment enacting that all representative bodies shall consist of women and men in equal numbers, whether elected or nominated or coopted or registered or picked up in the street like a coroner’s jury. In the case of elected bodies the only way of effecting this is by the Coupled Vote. The representative unit must not be a man or a woman but a man and a woman.
    George Bernard Shaw (1856–1950)

    No officer should be required or permitted to take part in the management of political organizations, caucuses, conventions, or election campaigns. Their right to vote and to express their views on public questions, either orally or through the press, is not denied, provided it does not interfere with the discharge of their official duties. No assessment for political purposes on officers or subordinates should be allowed.
    Rutherford Birchard Hayes (1822–1893)

    Wordsworth went to the Lakes, but he was never a lake poet. He found in stones the sermons he had already hidden there.
    Oscar Wilde (1854–1900)
