Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

A citizens action group was formed in mid-August 2011 following the draining of Glade Run Lake that resulted in a series of grassroots activities and led to the formation of the Glade Run Lake Conservancy (GRLC).

Sigmund Pehel emerged as the leader of the GRLC, and soon after, a Board of Directors consisting of four officers and five directors formed. Their goal: bring back the lake. Fundraisers ensued, membership with the GRLC was advertised, and conversations with important officials were had, all in an effort to raise enough money to fix the dam. Then in 2014, after a significant amount of money had already been raised, Governor Corbett committed $2 million dollars in capital budget funds to restore Glade Run Lake. At the same time, the PFBC also committed $2 million dollars, accounting for the estimated $4 million needed. Finally, the GRLC's goal of bringing back the lake would become a reality.

In 2017, after all needed improvements had been made to the dam, water and fish were again returned to Glade Run Lake. Community members praised the efforts of the GRLC and are once again able to recreate and enjoy Glade Run Lake. With the initial goal of restoring the lake now completed, current goals of the GRLC including the creation of vibrant habitats for fish and wildlife, improving on-site facilities, and protecting in perpetuity the 2,000 acre watershed of Glade Run Lake.

What's next for the Glade Run Lake Conservancy is to continue to enhance and preserve Glade Run Lake and the surrounding areas through land acquisition. We are able to continue our stewardship through donations, memberships, and volunteer efforts.
