DEXTER - Lake Wassookeag and Puffers Pond are beautiful natural features that all Dexter residents and the surrounding communities can enjoy.
On July 12th we would like to invite everyone to enjoy the lakes with us at the Public Swim Front from 10AM to 2PM for Dexter Lakes Day.
Everyone lives in a watershed and is responsible for the health of Maine's lakes and at Dexter Lakes Day you can learn all the little things people can do to keep our lakes beautiful. In addition to informational stations covering septic systems, camp road maintenance, invasive aquatic plants and lakeside landscapes we'll have an Ask the Experts stand where you can come with any water quality questions.
Dexter Utility District will have the Water Filtration Plant open for tours throughout the day.
There will be a Plant Swap station where you can bring plants to trade (for free) with your friends and neighbors.
Sonya Cainchette from Through the Garden Gate in Corinna will also be there selling plants and providing helpful information to anyone wishing to establish buffers or rain gardens to protect the lakes.
The Back Porch II will be performing live from 11AM to 1PM and activities for the kids will be provided.
As a special bonus, Lakeshore Restaurant will be offering special discounts on food to all Dexter Lakes Day participants.
Join the Town of Dexter, the Dexter Lakes Association, Penobscot County Soil and Water Conservation District and UMaine Cooperative Extension for a fun and educational day at the beach!
