I travelled to the US from S. Africa and was told I really had to visit Lake Tahoe. It was beautiful but I could find out little about it's issues and what is being done till I came here. Bravo University of Davis! This is a must see center for any tourist. They have 3D movies and really knowledgable docents. I spent almost an hour there and would like to have spent longer

The docents there are fabulous and so knowledgeable. The 3D Movie has to be one of the coolest features and it truly give you an in-depth look at the lake, literally! I learned so much. The green building tour was also very informative, I think I'm going to start planting native plants in my yard. Screw grass!
