Donate To The Effort

Owasco Lake is in trouble and she needs your help. Many of us remember when her beaches were clean, her water pure and there were no uninvited invaders like milfoil, zebra mussels, asian clams and quagga mussels. No one knew what a Harmful Algal Bloom was – no reason to care.

But the new reality is that now we MUST care. OWLA has been working aggressively for many, many years to preserve and protect the Lake. We now find ourselves in a position where we must look to each of you to help fund the initiatives required to continue our fight.

Funding these initiatives is our responsibility. We owe it to ourselves and future generations to restore and protect Owasco Lake. It is OUR most precious natural resource. We can and must do better.
