Changes and Updates
Evans Lake is a private lake in Mahoning County. Because of development around this private lake, there is no longer good public access. Property development on Springfield Road prevents views of the lake from that road. East Middletown Road which crosses the south bay has become busier and it is not safe to stop at this location to view birds.
Evans Lake (restricted access)
I have merged the two hotspots which we had in eBird for this lake, moved the resulting single hotspot out into the lake, and renamed the hotspot Evans Lake (restricted access).
