150 East Gilman St., Suite 2600, Madison, WI 53703

The Clean Lakes Alliance (CLA) is a not-for-profit organization devoted to improving the water quality of the lakes, streams, and wetlands of the Yahara River watershed.  We are a unique partnership of diverse stakeholders who are building on—and expanding upon—decades of ongoing efforts to preserve and restore our waterways.  Our goal is to raise community awareness of the issues facing the watershed, advocate for the welfare of the lakes, and help procure the necessary funding to clean and protect these waterways. Working closely with state, county, and local government agencies, as well as waterway user groups, riparian owners, and community nonprofits, CLA will serve as both a positive voice for the promotion of our cherished lakes and a fundraising vehicle for achieving these ends.
