Save Stockbridge Bowl
Annual Stockbridge Bowl Association meeting on Saturday, August 6, 2016
The campaign to Save Stockbridge Bowl and restore it back to health after years of obstruction due to buildup of Eurasian watermilfoil has what’s known as a “3-D plan”—the installation of a diversion drain, dredging, and drawing down of the lake. The Stockbridge Bowl Association, which has received support from the Town of Stockbridge, is aiming to raise the remaining $350,000 this summer to carry out its plan, which will cost a total of $3.9 million.
Once that fundraising goal is reached, the lake dredging and draw down is set to begin in fall 2017. The drain installation was completed in 2013. The annual meeting for the Stockbridge Bowl Association, which is open to the public, will take place on Saturday, August 6, 2016 in Fitzpatrick Hall at the Berkshire Country Day School at 55 Interlaken Road in Stockbridge. Ken Wagner, a noted Massachusetts lake expert, will speak about “Restoring and Maintaining a Healthy Lake.”
A buffet lunch will be served at noon, with the meeting following from 1:30 to 3 p.m.
