The Lake Erie Foundation

The Lake Erie Foundation is dedicated to protecting and preserving our most valuable freshwater resource — Lake Erie. They work to promote Lake Erie advocacy, legal work, education and outreach programs. Restoration will continue to thrive with the many dedicated groups doing great work in the Lake Erie watershed.

The Lake Erie Foundation is combining Lake Erie advocacy provided by the Lake Erie Improvement Association (LEIA) and Lake Erie Waterkeeper (LEW) into a long term sustainable organization that will serve Lake Erie’s waters for decades to come. The transition from LEIA and LEW is underway.
