Part of LOWA’s mission statement is to not only protect our watershed, but also to maintain it’s economic and social health. LOWA was proud to provide the patrol boats necessary to keep Lake Race 2021 safe and fun for everyone on Saturday, June 5th. Check out some photos from this event!
LOWA attended a Stream Team event held by our Master Naturalist partners on Friday, June 11th. During this event, 22 school children aged 11-17 assisted with collecting water samples and totaling numbers of various macroinvertebrates observed to determine the water quality of the Bennett Spring stream. LOWA is thankful for the opportunity to educate young community members on the natural world less seen and to help foster an early interest in keeping our water healthy.
LOWA was happy to provide patrol boats for the very first attempt in the Lake of the Ozarks to break the Guinness World Record for the Largest Boat Parade on Saturday, June 12th. Although we were not able to obtain the record, it was a fun event that brought much attention to our Lake, and it will not be the last Guinness Parade for our community here. Keep a look out for another attempt next year, and count on LOWA being there to help keep it safe!
