Community Lake Experience

Educating community members as they observe the world below the lake surface.

The Community Lake Experience program installs and maintains aquariums in Kosciusko County businesses and community centers so that residents can get an up-close look at native species like bluegill, bass, catfish and crayfish. The aquariums draw parallels between taking care of the aquarium and taking care of the environment, display native species for community members who might not otherwise interact with a local lake, and provide an opportunity for community members to ask critical questions about maintaining the local environment.

Each aquarium comes with a fish identification guide and collection of freshwater ecology books.
