At a meeting of the Lake County Commissioners on Tuesday, Feb. 18, Lake County Commissioner Mark Albertson raised an interesting point when members of the Lake County Umbrella Watershed Council (LCUWC) were talking about all the different projects throughout the county; and that was marketing to the state about the work done in Lake County on improving the health of the forests and waterways.

That brings up an interesting point, and one in which I have had a few conversations with people outside of Lake County. That is no one believes me about all the renewable energy that is in Lake County, whether it is solar or geothermal. How Lake County is working towards totally offsetting its carbon footprint, and working towards healthy forests and streams.
