Lake Robinson

Mark your calendar for Lake Robinson Day happening this Saturday, October 21 from 10 AM to 3 PM.

“Lake Robinson day is just a great day for the community to come out and really learn more about where they’re drinking water comes from,” Greer CPW Public Information Coordinator Alison Rauch said.

Rauch says this is a great way for people to learn more about their water.

“We just want to encourage the community to come out learn a little bit more about water, quality, and all the things that are impacted by our water quality,” Rauch said.

This is the second year CPW has taken on the event.

“It was previously known as the day of celebration, and it was run by the friends of Lake Robinson, but it sat dormant for about five years and then CPW took it over last year,” Rauch said.

The day is all about learning how to protect our waterways and learning about other things that can keep our environment safe and clean.

“I think people understand the fishing and kayaking and canoeing aspect of it, but then they also just don’t correlate that with the water coming out of your top after its treated,” Rauch said.

There will be plenty of vendors on site including a tree giveaway from TreesUpstate, a water barrel workshop, and a blood drive.

“We’re going to have free kayaking with calls bait shop the Greer Fire Department will be there also handing out life jackets first come first serve,” Rauch said.

A free lunch will also be provided, with all plates, utensils, and cups this year being recyclable. Find more information here.
