Granlibakken is uniquely located, surrounded by the Tahoe National Forest. Local, state and federal agencies work with us to restore the natural balance, improve the habitat for forest wildlife and promote fire safety with defensible space.
Replacing outdated lighting and appliances with more energy-efficient systems is key to energy conservation. Granlibakken relies on the experts for recommendations.
Recycling reduces Granlibakken's environmental impact. Although Lake Tahoe area trash is sorted at the receiving center, Granlibakken presorts cardboard, glass, plastic, aluminum and paper to streamline the effort. We also recycle batteries, ink cartridges, light bulbs and road sand.
Shared transportation also reduces our carbon footprint. Granlibakken provides shuttles to Tahoe City and Emerald Bay. We also encourage carpooling, using winter ski area shuttles, and taking not-so-mass transit around the Tahoe Basin and to Reno.
