One of a Kind

Tahoe yellow cress (TYC) is a small native plant that grows on the shoreline of Lake Tahoe and no where else in the world. It lives only on the sandy beaches and dunes at the ever-changing margin of the lake.

Preserving this rare plant is easy and it starts with you!
What can you do?

        • Avoid vegetated areas, especially near creek mouths
        • Maintain control of your pets
        • Launch and beach boats away from TYC
        • Do not enter fenced areas
        • Spread the word
