“If we are not willing to prepare today’s youth to be tomorrow’s lake caretakers, then our present efforts, however noble, are of little value to the future of our lakes.”

Lake Associations asked to help!

This year we are asking every lake association to make a special effort to send at least two officers and at least two students to this conference. Large lake associations should send more. The NWLC Planning Committee is offering a special FREE registration fee for students who register in advance.
