Wisconsin Lakes is the only statewide organization working exclusively to protect and enhance the quality of Wisconsin’s 15,000 inland lakes. The continued quality of tomorrow’s lakes depends on today’s decisions. Wisconsin Lakes works with lake groups, citizens, and the legislature to ensure that our lakes are protected and enjoyed for generations to come.

  • And are working together to protect lakes

Wisconsin Lakes is a statewide nonprofit organization dedicated to conserving, enhancing and restoring Wisconsin’s lakes by fostering responsible lake stewardship and by promoting effective, beneficial environmental public policy.
