Lake Wise Visits at Lake Carmi Have Begun!

Franklin County Natural Resources Conservation District is teaming up with Franklin Watershed Committee to offer free Lake Wise evaluations at Lake Carmi camps and lakefront residences this summer as part of our effort to assess progress and create new opportunities for improving clean water in Lake Carmi.


Lake Wise participants will learn all about how to manage their camp driveway, roof drainage, lawn, and shoreline to support lake health. We'll take a look at what's already working at your camp, and identify opportunities to further improve clean water. Outstanding camps can win a Lake Wise award sign to display proudly on their driveway or dock.


We kicked off our Lake Wise visits this week at Patton Shore and Westcott Shore, and were thrilled to award several camps with Lake Wise signs. Thank you to everyone who has participated so far!
