SONORA, Calif. – Please join Bureau of Reclamation staff at New Melones Lake on Saturday, April 20, as they celebrate the fifth annual Customer Appreciation Day. To show Reclamation’s appreciation for their customers, the $8 day use fee at Tuttletown and Glory Hole recreation areas will be waived for all visitors on April 20. New Melones Lake is managed by the Mid-Pacific Region’s Central California Area Office and is located approximately 60 miles east of Stockton, Calif.
New Melones Lake interpretive programs and events tie into President Barack Obama’s America’s Great Outdoors initiative (http://americasgreatoutdoors.gov/), which seeks to empower Americans to share in the responsibility to conserve, restore and provide better access to our lands and waters and leave a healthy and vibrant outdoor legacy for generations to come. Ranger-led hikes and activities follow the Department of the Interior’s Let’s Move Outside initiative (http://www.letsmove.gov/lets-move-outside), which encourages children and their families to enjoy outdoor activities that abound in every city, town and community.
