  • Foster cooperation and interaction of the public and private individuals, agencies, organizations and units of government involved with lake reservoir and watershed management.
  • Assist in the development of local lake and reservoir protection programs consistent with appropriate management strategies and techniques.
  • We schedule workshops in the Spring and Fall and are open to everyone. You can see when the next one is scheduled in our “Blog”.
