On June 12,2014, the Friends of Mirror Lake Sate Park, the Department of Natural Resources, and many contributors gathered for a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony to celebrate our collaboration and completion of the New Amphitheater at Mirror Lake State Park.
Two years before, the Friends of Mirror Lake undertook the biggest project to date for the park – a new seating area for the amphitheater. Through our fundraising efforts of fire wood and concession sales, ‘The Friends’ donated $50,000 to the project with a $20,000. State matching grant to fully fund the project. In August, we hosted our first wedding ceremony!
The Friends of Mirror Lake sponsor and staff many events throughout the year at Mirror Lake:
- Winter hikes – torch lighting, parking cars, greeting visitors
- Wood Work days – help with making bundles of firewood to be sold to campers
- Picnic table project – staining and assembling picnic tables
- Earth Day events – leading a group of volunteers while working the following:
- Invasive species removal
