The San Marcos Record published an article called “Charter trips abound for area birders looking to get out of town“. The article fetaures Elderhostel, a non-profit organization based in Boston, is dedicated to “providing exceptional educational opportunities at a remarkable value.”

During August 23-28 Elderhostel will be taking people to Nevada and the Eastern Sierra, including Lake Tahoe. That trip will also include the Owens Valley and Mono Lake Basin’s International Biosphere Preserve.

You can find some local favorite restaurants in Lake Tahoe at, and find vacation rentals on
