To focus attention on the value of lakes and the threats they face, the North American Lake Management Society started Lakes Appreciation Month.
“You work and play on them. You drink from them. But do you really appreciate them? Growing population, development, and invasive species stress your local lakes, ponds, and reservoirs. All life needs water; let’s not take it for granted!” – NALMS website
Governor Janet Mills recognizes the value of clean, healthy lakes to all Mainers, and has written a letter of support for Lakes Appreciation Month. Read her letter here.
