Cleaning up our lakes is a community effort
At Clean Lakes Alliance, we see a future where everyone realizes that the lakes are the center of our community.
We need your help!
You can help at home by keeping your leaves off the street, conserving water, and preserving shoreline habitat. We also encourage you to sign up for a volunteer day, attend an event, or make a donation.
By making a donation starting at just $35 a year, you can support important work to reduce phosphorus going into our lakes by 50%.
