Friends of Lake Cumberland

This volunteer group has as its mission the clean-up and maintenance of the Lake Cumberland shoreline. Since its formation in 1990, its members have developed a systematic methodology to address the problem, including programs that recruit within the community such as Adopt-a-Shoreline. The mission extends to raising public awareness of the need to protect this important water resource and the surrounding environment. FOLC is documented in a detailed history, photographs, administrative materials, news clippings, posters and fliers, and a picture map of the lake.
