Save Bear Creek Lake Park is an effort to combat a plan to drastically increase water storage in the lake, creating potentially devastating effects to riparian areas and wildlife habitats. Critics of the plan also cite the adverse effect the increase would have on use of the park for hiking, cycling and other recreational activities.
