Programs and Services
Our goal is to provide conservation and safety to the Youghiogheny River Lake. On a yearly basis, we participate in the National Lands Day Cleanup at Yough Lake. In 2021, we collected over 60 cubic yards of garbage. Also, built and placed 22 Fish Habitats in the Lake and have obtained additional 25 habitats to be placed this summer. In the past years, we have obtained multiple safety equipment to be place at high usage areas of the lake, completed a playground installation at the outflow (Fayette County), completed earth day plantings, placement of blue bird boxes, and sponsor the "Adopt a Shoreline" program at the lake. This year our goal is to purchase Safety towers on the three major launch docks at the lake.
