Protecting and Preserving
With more than 500 members and 50 volunteers, the Lake Leelanau Lake Association is dedicated to protecting and enhancing the quality and beauty of Lake Leelanau and its surrounding watershed for current and future generations.
Lake Leelanau and its 89,000-acre watershed are treasured for more than their magnificent vistas, pristine waters, thriving natural habitat, and delightful recreation.

Our protection and preservation activities include water quality, lakeshore protection, boating safety, fishing, and swimmer’s itch. Currently, our single biggest expense and our primary focus is controlling the existential threat posed to the lake by aquatic weeds, specifically Eurasian Watermilfoil, the most invasive aquatic weed in North America.
