Become a Member of OWLA

OWLA is a volunteer group made up of citizens like you!

Something is happening throughout the Finger Lakes; and it’s not good. The frequency and intensity of Harmful Algal Blooms (HABs) are increasing. For the first time in history all 11 Finger Lakes experienced HABs; and here in the Owasco Watershed, Owasco Lake appears to be particularly vulnerable. This can’t be the new normal. We owe it to ourselves and future generations to restore and protect Owasco Lake and the Finger Lakes. They are OUR most precious natural resource. We can and must do better.

We need your help!

The Owasco Watershed Lake Association (OWLA) is a growing group of concerned citizens and volunteers on a mission to restore the health of Owasco Lake. Our membership base is vital. The larger our base, the louder our voice as we ‘turn up the volume’ regarding issues affecting our lake and its watershed.

Our capacity to act is entirely dependent on our active membership. OWLA members generously contribute their time and energy to numerous projects and activities. Please join OWLA today!
