The Cayuga Lake Watershed Network identifies key threats
to Cayuga Lake and its watershed and it advocates for solutions
that support a healthy environment and
vibrant, sustainable communities.
At any given time, The Network has a rich mix of exciting programs directed at protecting and improving the watershed and its water resources. Four current projects are highlighted below.
Embrace the Lake
Volunteers throughout the watershed are making a difference by participating in cleanups of the shoreline, trubutaries and surrounding areas. For more information, click here.
Water Quality Monitoring
Volunteers are monitoring stream and lake water quality to strengthen understanding of concerns such as algal blooms and excessive aquatic plant growth. Efforts are coordinated by our new Water Resources Committee.
We believe fundamentally “It takes a network to protect a watershed” and collaborate with public and private organizations throughout the watershed. There are numerous opportunities throughout the year to become involved. Watch our Events Calendar for details.
