SOLitude Lake Management, an industry leader in lake and pond management, fisheries management and related environmental services for the United States, is seeking nominations to assist non-profit organizations across the country whose recreational lakes and ponds are in dire need of ecological restoration. To nominate a non-profit organization for the “Love Your Lake” initiative, email the name of the property, photos, contact information and the organization’s story to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Through the “Love Your Lake” program, SOLitude has assisted non-profits in need with returning their lakes or ponds to healthy waterbodies fit for activities like swimming, fishing and kayaking. VFW Post 637, the local Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) organization in Hopewell, Virginia, was the recipient of a recent “lake makeover.” The waterbody was infested with nuisance aquatic weeds, specifically Brazilian elodea, which negatively impacted the ecology of the pond and made it difficult for fish and other aquatic life to thrive. SOLitude joined forces with industry partners Crop Production Services and SePRO Corporation to perform a series of water quality enhancing treatments. The restoration efforts have allowed veterans and their families to have access to a cleaner waterbody that can once again be enjoyed for fishing.
“As a member of the VFW Post 637 and on behalf of our membership, we would like to express our sincere appreciation,” said Jim Cooper, property manager of the VFW Post. “It is awesome to see companies such as SOLitude Lake Management and their partners support our nation’s veterans and their families.”
Another “Love Your Lake” project that is currently underway involves the restoration of a pond at Lancaster Children’s Home in Lancaster, South Carolina. The Lancaster Children’s Home provides kids in distress a safe haven in which to work on the issues that have caused them to be placed in an out-of-home environment. All money raised by the organization goes directly to the children for food, housing and clothing. SOLitude and industry partner Nufarm teamed-up to treat the pond which is infested with the aquatic weed, watermeal, so that children at the home can use it for fishing and other recreational activities.
“Love Your Lake” is one of several initiatives of The SOLution, a company-wide program that encourages the company and all employees to strive to “create a better world” through volunteerism, community outreach, sustainability and environmental consciousness. SOLitude’s company leadership feels it is important to not only be good stewards of the environment, but also to fulfill company core values to “take action and be accountable” and to “protect and respect nature.” To learn more, visit www.solitudelakemanagement.com/solution.
