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. For many people, they represent a unique sanctuary from a troubled world and unforgettable memories of friends and family, past and future.
Since 1980, the volunteers and members who comprise the Lake Leelanau Lake Association have contributed their time, talents, and financial resources to protect and preserve this priceless heritage for current and future generations.
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.
If you’re already a member or a volunteer, we thank you for your generous contributions. If you’re not, we invite you to explore our website, sign up for our monthly ebulletin or to become a volunteer on the Contact Us page, or become a member on our Join/Donate page.
