Let's Make the Most of this Opportunity
The CFL welcomes the Governor's Proclamation and urges its lake associations and members across the State to take advantage of this event to educate the public on the issues facing their lakes, locally.
Invite your neighbors, municipal leaders, and State representatives out for a "day on the lake". Show them, first hand, the beauty of your lake, and show them the issues your lake is facing.
Whether your lake has issues with aquatic invasive plants, Harmful Algal Blooms, or impaired water quality from storm water runoff, the impact of new development, or failing septic systems, please educate your community and representatives on the importance of working with you and the role they can play in saving our lakes.
Nationwide, it is Lakes Appreciation Month, an event organized by NALMS (the North American Lake Management Society). For additional ideas on what your lake can do, check out the NALMS webpage
