Campaign to Help Kaercher Creek Park


Tim Mazaika of Hamburg, PA has been a 1-man show trying to keep Kaercher Creek Park accessible to those wishing to enjoy the fishing area. The county of Berks abandoned the area several years ago and in 2014 he took it upon himself to mow grass to keep the area open to anyone who enjoyed fishing at Kaercher Creek....be it a lone fisherman, family or a father or mother teaching their son or daughter the excitement of fishing for the first time.

To continued his mission to help 'Kaercher' remain accessible to those wishing to enjoy the fishing area he needs some financial and volunteer support.

Please check out his GoFundMe site at the link below for more information and to help keep this area safe and accessible for everyone to enjoy.
