When we asked the visitor center what we might do to fill our time here they suggested this place. I am an environmentalist and so this place hit my interests spot on. The docent was very friendly and informative, thankfully taking extra time with us as it was close to closing when we arrived. He gave us information about the watershed areas around Lake Tahoe and the research on water and runoffs they are doing in the area. He brought us into a brief movie that explained more. I am glad we took the time and that we were allowed inside at the end of the day.

The name is not exciting - and the website is not exciting - but this is an exciting place for folks of all ages to visit. The center is dedicated to research on beautiful Lake Tahoe and does a wonderful job of explaining to both kids and adults the ecosystem of the lake and what can be done to keep the lake blue. Everything is free - parking, admission, and the hourly docent-led tour. The introductory movie aboard the mock boat explains the research efforts and the cool 3-D movie goes into more of the specifics. Our docents showed us both native and non-native fish and told us about the significance of each on the health of the lake. After your visit, be sure to take a stroll through the small Demonstration Garden on the campus.

A research center dedicated to Lake Tahoe conservation and research. They provide a nice guided tour and information around the lake formation, natural history and all the challenges to keep as natural as possible. Scientists and researchers from all over the world are involved on its many projects (inclusive cientistas e pesquisadores Brasileiros - Profa. Dra. Luciana Cardoso - UFRGS).

My wife and I stopped about 20 minutes before closing and the docent Frances Pierce was so very helpful and providing us information and learning tools to take home to share with our granddaughters. She also played a 15 minute video on how Lake Tahoe was created. It was fascinating. We will come back, hopefully with our granddaughters to tour then entire facility. Thank you, Frances.

We loved our stop at the UC Davis Tahoe Environmental Research Center. We only had about an hour and could have stayed longer. Our docent was extremely knowledgeable, professional and polite with plenty of knowledge about Lake Tahoe. Exhibits were interesting. We were a family of four adults but younger children would have enjoyed also. Very informative.
