Protect. Improve. Restore.

Green Lake

The Green Lake Association works with its partners to ensure the conservation of Big Green Lake and its watershed with a singular focus on its water quality.

We envision a clean, healthy lake that fulfills the needs of future generations for living, playing and working.

HOW WE MAKE AN IMPACT: PILLAR PROJECTS

PROJECT:
CLEAN STREAMS

A network of over 140 miles of stream flows into Big Green Lake. Of that, over 56,000 feet of its banks are eroded and actively polluting the lake. That's why we're restoring streams and wetlands.

PROJECT:
GREEN ACRES

Since over 60% of the Green Lake drainage area is agricultural land, we need to vamp up our efforts to make sure that every drop of water flowing off every farm is as clean as possible.

It has become more important than ever before to stop the spread of aquatic invasive species. We remove thousands of pounds of carp year, and staff boat launches, so you can help do your part to keep Green Lake clean.

HOW YOU CAN HELP

“We didn’t inherit Green Lake from our ancestors.

We’re borrowing it from our grandchildren.”
