Tahoe native to head Tahoe conservation group 

A Lake Tahoe native has been selected as executive director of Tahoe's leading conservation organization.

Darcie Goodman-Collins emerged from a national search to head the League to Save Lake Tahoe.

The 32-year-old Goodman-Collins, who was born and raised in South Lake Tahoe, has worked with the UC Davis Tahoe Environmental Research Center and Tahoe-Baikal Institute, and has served on the league's board since 2009.

In 1997, she was the Tahoe community's youth representative at the first Tahoe Presidential Summit called by then-President Bill Clinton to deal with environmental issues at the lake.

She earned two bachelor's degrees from the University of California at Santa Barbara in biology and political science. She also earned a doctorate degree at UCSB's school of environmental science and management.

She'll assume the post Feb. 6.
