The Lake Tahoe Basin, which spans across the California and Nevada state line, has long been known for its rich scenic beauty
as well as its abundance of commercial and recreational opportunity. Tourism, logging, and shoreline development have had
a presence around the lake since the middle 1800s, but not without dispute. Early on, conservationists argued that manmade
environments were a risk to the natural ecology found in the basin. It was believed that unless protected, the rare features
of the region would be lost.
