WHAT WE DO 

OUR MISSION

For the sake of Green Lake and those who cherish it,
we strive to improve Green Lake’s water quality through science-based action, diverse partnerships, and community commitment.

OUR VISION

We envision a restored, resilient Green Lake.

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.

“The waters of Green Lake shape our identity. They tie us to past generations,

and generations yet to come.”

THE GREEN LAKE COMMUNITY

There are so many great things happening in the wider Green Lake community that it's sometimes difficult to keep it all straight.

Much of this local momentum is thanks to three non-profit organizations: The Green Lake Association, Green Lake Conservancy, and Town Square.

These organizations are similar in name, but very different in our missions.

Think of it this way: The Green Lake Association is all about improving water quality for the LAKE, the Green Lake Conservancy focuses on preserving LAND, and Town Square (formerly Green Lake Renewal) is working to revitalize the local ECONOMY.
