Hello to All Volunteers who turned out for our Annual Lake Clean Up. Great job! Thank you so much for coming out to help beautify your lake. We also want to thank the City of Atascadero for doing a much needed pre- clean up, procuring the necessary permit, providing tools, having Justin on hand to help when needed and Ryan to get all the I's dotted and T's crossed. We also had a fine turn out of the Atascadero High School Key Club who really worked hard and did a fantastic job. Two dumpsters were filled and there are still piles remaining.
Enjoy this beautiful fall weather.

We would like to take a moment to thank all of you who have given your time and donations throughout 2017.  Initiating and completing a state of the art aeration system has kept our lake free of algae and oxygenated the water creating better water quality. Fish and wildlife have returned for everyone's enjoyment. We could not have accomplished this without your ongoing support.
