Lake Lag

Lake Lag [layk·lahg] n. Lake Lagunita, the on-campus lake which functioned as a bellwether of the campus ecosystem, it remained an empty crater for years and years, becoming a symbol during the notorious drought of the 1980s. (During this period, the dry lake bed played host to several Big Game Bon Fires, until the discovery of a threatened species of amphibian, the California Tiger Salamander, was found to be breeding there. Now it's an artificially dry lake, mainly due to serious conservation efforts of species like the aforementioned vulnerable California Tiger Salamander.
