After a spectacular summer and warm days filled with family, friends and fun, share one of your favorite Glen Lake/ Crystal River Watershed photos and we’ll feature them here throughout the winter months.

Send your best shots to: gla.photo.submission@gmail.com. 

Include a photo caption, identifying anyone in the photo you’d like mentioned. Include the date and location, and please make sure your photos are 300 dpi, no larger than 100 kb, and in jpeg format. Content should be appropriate for a general audience.

GLA reserves the right to screen and choose photos. 

We’re looking forward to seeing your images of summer fun…and just might need a reminder that warmth will indeed return when the white stuff is falling! 


Thank You to Our New Glen Lake Guardians!

Education, News August 31, 2018 No Response

 

The Guardian program educates and advocates protecting Glen Lake/Crystal River Watershed by engaging in best practices. Guardians voluntarily pledge to protect, and share their advocacy with others.

 

We’re excited and encouraged by the 43 new Glen Lake Guardians who signed up this summer and we’re sending them a big thank you! 

They all pledged to help on our mission to protect our Glen Lake/Crystal River Watershed by employing best practices and encouraging others to do so.

First-time pledges came from 22 people at the August annual meeting, bringing the tally of new Guardians signing up since the start of summer to 43. 

The grand Guardian total stands at 398 since 2015 and our Guardian Ambassador, Tricia Denton, is working diligently to increase these water steward numbers even higher.

Merganser Relocation Update

Education, News August 14, 2018 No Response

It takes a team…but each relocation of a merganser brood helps us to reduce the occurrence of Swimmer’s Itch.

  • 11 broods and 88 chicks were relocated this summer.
  • Our new trapping crew and equipment worked well.
  • Challenges were trying to trap a few of the broods that seemed to be extra wild (maybe harassed?)
  • Broods came on the lake three weeks late.
  • Warmer water and weather added to the contact hours for swimming.

Thank you to all who reported broods, as cooperation helps our efforts in keeping both Glen Lakes and the Crystal River Watershed as clean as possible for optimum enjoyment.
