Know Lake County: Terry Knight & History of Clear Lake
6/17/2017, starts 2:00 PM

Terry Knight, the outdoor columnist for the Lake County Record-Bee will speak about the history of Clear Lake and Mount Konocti at the Lake County Library’s Know Lake County lecture on June 17 at 2:00 p.m.. The free program will be presented at the county library’s Lakeport branch at 1425 N. High Street.

Clear Lake is the largest natural lake entirely within California. Its sixty-eight square miles are home to abundant fish and bird populations. Lakes have existed on this spot for about two and a half million years, making Clear Lake a candidate for the oldest lake in North America.

            Mount Konocti, sitting on the shores of Clear Lake in the center of Lake County, is a volcano that erupted last about 11,000 years ago. Konocti stands out against the skyline and is a distinctive feature of the Lake County landscape, visible from miles around.

            Terry Knight shares his knowledge of Lake County’s outdoor life in his Outdoors column in the Lake County Record-Bee, and in a wide array of other publications. The biology of the outdoors is his favorite part of nature.  Knight was nominated to the California Outdoors Hall of Fame in 2016.

            The Know Lake County lectures feature speakers from a wide array of organizations and disciplines, each representing some aspect of Lake County.

            The Lake County Library is on the internet at and Facebook at
