Restore Glade Run

It is trout season in Western Pennsylvania and, again, Glade Run Lake stands empty.
This lake contributed $1.2 million to the local economy per year, and it is estimated to take $4.2 million to repair and restore. It pays for itself in four years, but the lake stands empty.
Osprey, bald eagles, geese, ducks and heron visit the place where for 50 years they have fed and raised their young — but the lake stands empty.

Many people can’t wait to take their children and grandchildren to where they learned to fish and hunt — but the lake stands empty.
