Lake Harris will be featured in the cover photo of Lake County’s 2020 Adopt-a-Lake calendar. The photo, submitted by C Kay Johnson, was selected out 39 top submissions and placed in an online gallery for voting.

The public cast more than 2,000 votes in the online contest, choosing the top 14 photos to be featured in the calendar. The increasingly popular photo contest received more than 500 submissions of photos of waterbodies this year. The runners-up will be featured on the back of the calendar, according to a press release.

The Adopt-a-Lake Program encourages local civic organizations, individuals, fraternal and business groups to adopt a segment of a lake’s shoreline. The program is comprised of three separate components: Water-quality monitoring, public education and pollution prevention. Volunteers can select which aspects of the program best fit their level of interest. 

The Adopt-a-Lake calendars are available at the Lake County Water Lab, 12923 County Landfill Road, and at the Solid Waste Administration Office, 13130 County Landfill Road for a suggested donation of $5. Calendars may also be ordered by mailing a check to Adopt-a-Lake Program, P.O. Box 7800, Tavares, FL 32778. If requesting a calendar by mail, an additional $1 should be included for postage and handling.
