The decision has been made to drain the lakes at Panola Mountain. There is to be a meeting tomorrow afternoon at Panola Mountain State Park in regards to this and even though I have to work tomorrow and will have to go straight there after a crazy day at work, I still hope to attend. If I can't make it, then I hope someone will read this post...
This is very important to me. There is a really lovely lake loop trail that skirts around the lake and a beautiful bridge/boardwalk that crosses over the water at one end. Why have a lake loop trail with no lake? More importantly, it saddens me to think of all the wildlife that would be affected by the loss of this habitat.
Alexander Lakes are lovely in every season and every time of day.. It is my hope that somehow they will be saved.
I wonder, will there be any person at the meeting who will beg them not to drain the lakes? If not, then it is my hope that someone in charge of this will read this post and realize how important the lakes are, not just for the beauty alone, but for all the creatures who make these lakes their home.
