Are You Ready to Take the Pledge to Protect?

Are you ready to take the Pledge to Protect?

The Guardian program educates and advocates protecting Glen Lake/Crystal River Watershed by engaging in best practices. Guardians voluntarily pledge to protect, and share their advocacy with others.

Download the Pledge today! Print, return by mail, or scan and email.

The “Pledge to Protect” is for anyone — riparian, watershed resident, or regular visitor — who wants to become a Glen Lake Guardian and advance the effort to protect and preserve the Glen Lake/ Crystal River Watershed.

As you read the pledge form, consider what you already do for the watershed and then pick items that will be new for you. GLA uses the honor system, and we know that what you check is what you will put into action.

GLA would like to celebrate your commitment by listing your name as a Glen Lake Guardian in our newsletters and on the GLA website. You may choose to keep your anonymity by checking the appropriate box at the bottom of the pledge form.

You will be encouraged to renew your pledge every two years. Through this process, we hope you will continue to practice best management and learn new ways to protect our water, drop by drop.

Are you already doing everything on the pledge form? Plenty of other ideas are available on our Stewardship Checklist.

sailboatAfter making a two-year pledge to protect, you will receive a Guardian decal that we encourage you to display in a highly visible location, such as the back window or bumper of your car. Displaying it will demonstrate your commitment to best practices and encourage others to ask about the program and, hopefully, join.

Do you own a business? Are you a member of an organization? Businesses and other community organizations are encouraged to become Glen Lake Guardians, doing their part to protect our watershed.
