The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Pittsburgh District operates Youghiogheny River Lake. The lake’s staff, in partnership with the Friends for the Youghiogheny River Lake, received the 2023 Public Lands Alliance Partnership Award for their combined work to continuously improve recreational activities on and around the lake for visitors. Park rangers at Youghiogheny work with local organizations, schools, volunteer groups and Pennsylvania state partners year-round to host community, safety and cleanup events. The prestigious award recognized iconic parks such as Yellowstone and Blue Ridge Mountain national parks in the past. (U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Pittsburgh District photo by Michel Sauret)
