Pinnacles generated $639,018 in economic benefit to Berea, according to study

So far in 2019, 85% of visitors to the Pinnacles in Berea College Forest are from out of town, according to a recent survey. The increase in tourists has had a positive economic impact, the survey says. 

The Pinnacles in the Berea College Forest generated $639,018 in economic benefit to Berea in 2018, according to a recent report to the Berea City Council.

Dr. Louisa Summers, professor in the college’s Health and Human Performance Department, along with students with Berea College’s Entrepreneurship for the Public Good, presented the findings to the council last week. They highlighted the results of a three-year study that documents who visited the Pinnacles, where visitors came from, and how much they spent in connection with their visit.

Calling All Lake Lovers! Monitoring Program in Need of Volunteers

Volunteers from the Paintsville Utilities Water Treatment Plant learn to conduct Secchi Depth monitoring. They plan to monitor eight locations on Paintsville Lake, providing data for the program as well as source water protection for the drinking water supply.

Are you an avid fisherman? A lake resident? A weekender who loves being on the water? You could be part of a growing number of citizens dedicated to improving the Commonwealth’s 440,000 acres of lake waters through the Volunteer Lake Monitoring Program.

Offered through a partnership between the Kentucky Energy and Environment Cabinet and the Watershed Watch in Kentucky, this program gives residents the opportunity to join other citizen scientists across the state who have made a commitment to monitor and report the condition of their chosen lake on a regular basis, now through October.

Eric Russell, who lives near Kentucky Lake in Marshall County, said the time required to be involved in the lake monitoring program is minimal compared to the sense of contribution he feels. “I went to MSU and studied Biology and GIS years ago, but ended up following a different career path,” Russell said. “I live near the lake and want to be a part of helping to monitor our natural resources.”
