Bear Lake craft fair

Bear Lake Preservation Association held their annual fair and corn festival Sunday.

MANAWA - What started as a homeowners association social event in Manawa, has grown into a lot more.

Bear Lake Preservation Association held their 10th annual craft fair Sunday.

The event helps the organization raise money to help various projects.

This year, the money will help build fish habitats on Bear Lake.

Those within the association say they are doing whatever they can to help preserve the ecosystem.

"We are really trying to preserve it for today and future generations." said Wendy Obrien, President of the Bear Lake Preservation Association. "So it's an organization that really is working on trying to preserve the fish habitat and the aspects of the lake for recreational purposes."

The association is also working on getting rid of invasive species.
