75th Celebration Fundraising Campaign: Supporting our Watershed Scientist Position

Education, News No Response

It’s all about the water….

After 75 years, the Glen Lake Association is celebrating this impressive milestone with the same basic focus: protecting and preserving the water within the Glen Lake/ Crystal River Watershed.

To commemorate this accomplishment with an eye to the future, the GLA Board of Directors is announcing the “75th Celebration Campaign” now underway.

Contributions raised between now and our Annual Meeting date of August 6 will finance GLA’s Watershed Scientist position, currently held by Watershed Biologist Rob Karner.

The association’s 75th Campaign goal: $150,000. Please click here to donate. 

Thanks to the generosity of three investors, the 75th Campaign has been challenged to raise $75,000 which they will match dollar-for-dollar, doubling the impact of every gift.

“Over seven decades of caring about our water by many people has brought us to where we are today,” said GLA development chair, Lori Lyman. “Through sound management practices, cutting-edge research and support by boards, staff, and a long list of volunteers committed to saving this resource, GLA is known throughout the state and beyond. Despite this strong leadership and progressive programming, the challenges continue with more invasive species, increased pressure and use and changing environmental conditions. To save this cherished water, GLA needs to remain vigilant in its research and education efforts.”

Please help us by investing in the future of the GLA during this landmark year. Your support will enable GLA to continue to research and deploy environmental best practices resulting in protecting and preserving the unparalleled Glen Lake/ Crystal River Watershed.
