Lakes Appreciation Month

LAKES APPRECIATION MONTH

Nationwide citizens, city and county governments are celebrating Lakes Appreciation month, in July. Sponsored by the North American Lake Management Society the goal is to draw attention to the value and importance of lakes. It is clear that as we enjoy and use lakes, we also have to protect them. Because lake pollution is caused by so many different activities, no one regulation will suffice to prevent it. Education and outreach aimed at changing individual behavior are key components to any successful lake protection effort. We are surrounded by lakes and it is not hard to recognize the economic and ecological value of our lakes.

For us here in Polk County, that means an opportunity to celebrate our beautiful lakes (over 500 lakes) with a lake cleanup during the month of July. Lakes Education/Action Drive (LE/AD), along with the City of Lakeland, Lakeland Clean & Beautiful, City of Winter Haven, Keep Winter Haven Clean & Beautiful, Polk County Board of County Commissioners and Keep Polk County Beautiful are helping to coordinate the efforts with other agencies and groups with one goal in mind – removing trash from our lakes and leaving Polk County’s lakes better than they were before!

You may ask HOW can YOU make a difference:

Visit our website at www.lakeseducation.org to sign up for a lake clean-up at your favorite lake, join LE/AD in supporting Lake Educational events, and write or call your local decision makers and thank them for taking steps towards protecting our local waters and encourage them to keep doing more.
