Additional dredging by a private owner will be occurring between Heron Drive and Hummingbird Drive. The cove below the dam of Deerskin Lake will provide better access to Sweetwater Lake for the owners of Deerskin Lake. Deerskin Lake was created when Howard Prince owed a Mr. Potschmidt for building some of the roads around the lakes. Prince deeded off the land where Deerskin Lake is now located to Mr. Potschmidt for payment of road construction.


Notice the roadside cleanup occurring in different locations around the conservancy? Mother Nature seems to want to take over on some of our roads and park areas. Thanks to Richard Blasdale, a summer employee, for the hard work and efforts.

A near drowning incident at Sweetwater Beach makes us all appreciate our EMT-FIRE DEPARTMENT VOLUNTEERS. They were on the scene in just a few minutes after a 17 year old was brought in by fellow swimmers. Next time there's a need for help at fish fries or donations are needed, we all need to step up.

Contrary to earlier notifications, the dredging on Sweetwater Lake has begun. One of the first cove areas being worked on is between Falcon and Finch Drives on the West side of Sweetwater.
