Connect with neighbors, share your favorite memories from Penn Lake and learn more about the water body at the Penn Lake celebration on Saturday, September 10, 10 a.m. – 12 p.m., at Lower Penn Lake Park, 1925 West 86th Street. Scientists will be at the event ready to talk about what’s living in the lake—beneficial species as well as invasive species—including fish, amphibians, vegetation and more. The City and the Nine Mile Creek Watershed District are hosting the event. Water Resource Specialist Jack Distel will be there to provide more information about the restoration options available for Lower Penn Lake and how community members can get involved.
