Together, we can do more!

When you become a member of the Glen Lake Association, you help ensure we have the resources necessary to fund vital watershed protection programs each year. Our most significant on-going expenses include water quality monitoring and research, invasive species prevention and control, and community-wide education to protect the health of the area lakes and river. Support our mission today by joining others who share your love of Glen Lake.
