WE ARE A GROUP OF LAKE ELSINORE NEIGHBORS DEDICATED
TO SAVING OUR MOST VALUABLE ASSET, THE LAKE

WHY YOU SHOULD BE INVOLVED?

Property values drop and businesses close up when the lake is not an asset to our community, which reflects on all of us, our chosen home, business, and playground. Our speaker at this meeting will be Pat Kilroy, one of the most knowledgeable experts about Lake Elsinore, it’s history, it’s problems. Pat was the lake guru from 1994 to 2014. There will be time for questions, and a brief explanation of what this self-appointed group is about.

OUR NEXT PUBLIC MEETING

When: Monday, April 24 2017 7:00 P.M.

Location: 21180 Waite Street, VFW Hall (behind the ELKS Lodge on Mission Trail)

The next public meeting of Save Our Lake will be on Monday evening, April 24, 7 P.M. We have an outstanding guest speaker: Kevin Jeffries!

WHAT IS A WATER SHED?

A Watershed is an area of land that drains into a lake or river. As rainwater and melting snow run downhill, they carry sediment and other materials into our streams, lakes and groundwater.

Watersheds provide water for drinking, irrigation and streams. Many people also enjoy the lakes and streams for their beauty, boating, fishing and swimming. Healthy watersheds also provide food and shelter for wildlife.The Lake Elsinore and San Jacinto Watershed covers over 720 square miles, starting in the San Jacinto Mountains, running westerly through Canyon Lake and ending in Lake Elsinore.
