July was proclaimed the month for celebrating our wonderful lakes, ponds, and reservoirs beginning in 2019. Sponsored through the North American Lake Management Society, Lakes Appreciation Month is meant to highlight the importance of these waters to our livelihoods and give you opportunity to make them even better.

Some of the ways to celebrate include:

- Sharing your stories and photos on social media using the hashtag #LakesAppreciation
- Organizing a shoreline or park cleanup
- Enjoying your local lake, pond, or reservoir with family and friends
