Why Do You Love Green Lake?

2013 Leadership Campaign

Why do you love Green Lake? It’s a simple question with an infinite possibility of answers. No matter your reason, your support of the GLA connects one generation of Green Lake lovers to the next.

Our Leadership Campaign accounts for nearly one-third of our annual budget, and it’s members like you who are an essential part of our ability to make a meaningful impact in keeping Big Green Lake and its watershed beautiful and healthy. Please consider continuing your support by participating in our 2013 Leadership Campaign.

The lake is at an ecological tipping point, so the GLA is acting with urgency to support conservation initiatives and outreach projects to help preserve this magnificent resource. You can read more about these initiatives in the following page. We rely on your generous support as a Leadership Donor to fund these important projects that are an integral part in the future of Green Lake.

A cleaner Green Lake means a better fishery, a more robust economy, a healthier ecosystem and higher property values. We cannot do this work without your support and we thank you in advance for your continued generosity.

2013 Leadership Campaign CTH K Marsh

The CTH K Marsh is currently home to carp that prevent this natural system from functioning as a last line of defense against pollutants that dump into Green Lake.  The GLA will work with our partners in the area to restore this marsh in 2014, turning this system into a beneficial filter that traps harmful nutrients that fuel weed growth and are detrimental to the lake.  A healthier marsh contributes to a healthier Green Lake!

2013 Leadership Campaign Harvester

Ever gotten tangled in weeds in Green Lake?  The GLA is investing in long-term solutions for Green Lake, but we also recognize the need for short-term relief.  That’s why we’re partnering with the Green Lake Sanitary District to double down on weed harvesting efforts around the lake.  With your help, Green Lake will have a second weed harvester in 2014!  That means twice as frequent harvester visits and fewer weeds that impede swimming and boating activities.

2013 Leadership Campaign Urban Runoff

Upstream pollutants can flow downstream, which is why the GLA is teaming with cities and residential areas in 2014 to reduce these upstream sources from entering Green Lake.  Preventing lawn fertilizers, leaves, pet waste and other urban pollutants from entering Green Lake can help to improve the lake and to preserve this resource for future lake lovers.
