To promote the understanding, protection, and thoughtful management of lake and watershed ecosystems in Oregon. Serving almost entirely through volunteer efforts, the Oregon Lakes Association puts on an annual conference, publishes a triannual newsletter, sponsors Harmful Algal Bloom trainings, and works as an advocate for lakes in the legislative arena.
Additionally, we recently started a Scholarship program for graduate students working on Oregon Lakes. Interested in membership? Please consider joining the growing number of lake associations, nonprofits, consultants, and students who together create...a voice for quiet waters.
Scholarship Fund 2019 Goal
The Oregon Lakes Association has created a scholarship fund. This special dedicated fund will be used exclusively to provide scholarships to graduate students working on Oregon Lakes. Please visit the Scholarship page and consider donating today!
Thanks for making the 2019 Conference in Bend a success!
