CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - Former Vice President Al Gore will return to northern Nevada next month to attend the 17th annual Lake Tahoe Summit.

Gore and President Bill Clinton came to the alpine lake for the first presidential forum in 1997 focusing on the environmental challenges of the Tahoe Basin.

His attendance was announced Monday by Democratic Majority Leader Harry Reid. Reid will host this year's forum Aug. 19 at Sand Harbor State Park on Tahoe's east shore.

Reid orchestrated the first summit that brought international attention to Tahoe's delicate ecosystem and the myriad threats to its famed cobalt blue waters.

Reid says California Gov. Jerry Brown also is scheduled to attend. Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval has been invited.
