Love Your Lake 2023 to be held at Blue Marsh Lake July 14

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is partnering with Pennsylvania Lake Management Society, Aqua Om Paddle, Penn State Extension Master Watershed Stewards, Berks Nature, and the Tulpehocken Creek Watershed Association to present Love Your Lake 2023 at Blue Marsh Lake.

The month of July has been designated as Lakes Appreciation Month in the state of Pennsylvania and across the country. Lakes provide valuable environmental and economic benefits, but perhaps more importantly, are a place people enjoy visiting to recreate in many different ways.

After learning about lakes, join park staff to truly appreciate the beauty of Blue Marsh Lake with an evening paddle and float from 8pm to 10pm. All are welcome to bring your own kayak/canoe/paddleboard to join in on this evening activity. Be sure to remember all your required safety gear; bring a life jacket for everyone, a noise making device, and a means to produce a light signal.
