Lake Keomah State Park
From open water to deep woods, Lake Keomah State Park is home to a variety of landscapes, and animal habitats. Bullfrogs hide in the marshes, wild birds fly up from the grasslands and channel catfish bury into the mud. In the fall, the leaves change and attract many park-goers. The woodland provides many hiking trails and during the winter months, park-goers often run their snowmobiles through the trails. The state government protects the park.
REAP funding for this project: $884,384
