Tales of a creature in Lake Tahoe have been around for centuries, and sightings have continued into modern day. Find out what really lurks in the blue alpine waters in the final Conversing with Creatures lecture.

In the 1980s, Lake Tahoe resident Bob McCormick coined the name Tahoe Tessie. He is also the author of two children’s books that feature the adventures of Tahoe Tessie, and continues to research Lake Tahoe and its mysteries. He will visit the May Museum to give a detailed presentation on his findings. After a Q&A he will be available for a book sale and signing.
