Preserve, Protect, and Enhance Our Lakes and Waterways

"In the end we conserve only what we love, we love only what we understand, and we understand only what we are taught." -    Babr Dioum, Sengalese poet                                                         

VCLRA is an information, education network that helps lake associations and individual citizens make wise decisions in their effort to preserve and protect the unique waterways of Vilas County, now and well into the future.

Join VCLRA today. You will receive our newsletter and you may participate in our yearly Lakes Day at the Conserve School near Land O' Lakes. Both of these will update you on current lake and river issues and future educational events. Learn how to take an active role in preventing Aquatic Invasive Species, preserving wild shorelines, managing piers, saving loons and maintaining clean, unpolluted water.
