Association Hears About State Of Pike Lake
Pike Lake’s watershed is 23,405 acres.
That’s 50 times larger than Center Lake’s, 5 times larger than Chapman Lake’s and 1.25 times larger than Winona Lake’s, according to Lyn Crighton, executive director of The Watershed Foundation.
Crighton was one of three speakers at Pike Lake Association’s meeting Saturday on what can be done to help save the lake from pollution and erosion. She was joined by Alex Hall, Lilly Lakes and Streams at Grace College associate director; and Diane Quance, Warsaw Common Council president and Pike Lake Association board member.
Before the meeting, Paddles for Conservation Club and Grace College students did a clean up of Deeds Creek, which flows into the lake.
Quance said, “For the last two summers, every Monday morning, I have taken Grace College students out to do data collection on the lake to see what the health of our lake is.”
