In 2001; Mr. von Lossberg resigned from his Silicon Valley job to volunteer in the Tahoe basin in order to give something back to the place where he had spent many summer vacations. He helped organize the Tahoe Truckee Earth Day Festival and serves as festival chair. He also serves on the board of the Tahoe-Baikal Institute (TBI); a summer student exchange program between Lake Baikal in Russia and Lake Tahoe. As the volunteer project director; he worked with the exchange students to survey drainage patterns on approximately 2000 land parcels in the area of South Lake Tahoe. He also volunteers with the Lake Tahoe Environmental Education Coalition; League to Save Lake Tahoe; California Tahoe Conservancy; UC Davis Tahoe Research Group; and Tahoe Rim Trail Association.
