About the Friends of Barren River Lake

The Friends of Barren River Lake was first chartered in 1987 as the Barren River Regional Water Safety Council and has since changed its name, received non-profit status and broadened its goals and direction. In 2007 the name was changed to Friends of Barren River Lake and it is now actively involved, not only in water safety initiatives, but also in promoting environmental stewardship through supporting efforts to restore, preserve, and protect the local natural and cultural resources.
