There are many ways to help preserve the lakes and rivers we value so much.  Here are a few.

Volunteer to monitor your lake or river

Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources and University of Wisconsin Extension have training programs and equipment for citizen science volunteer monitors. These resources explain how you can help by participating in these important programs:

Citizen Lake Monitoring Network

Water Action Volunteers

Help Protect Loons

LoonWatch, a program of the Sigurd Olson Environmental Institute, protects common loons and their aquatic habitats.  Read about loons and learn how you can help them.

Serve on a WCLRA Committee, Project Team or the Board of Directors

Washburn County Lakes & Rivers Association is an active group and, since the Board is all volunteer, we can always use additional help to assure that we can do our best to protect the water of the county.  Contact any of the Board members listed on the right side of this page to learn more about our current needs.  To volunteer for one of our standing committees or a project team, or to join our Board of Directors, complete an application form and then send it to any Board member.
