Why Education?

Bug Fest 2015

Bug Fest 2015

Because so many threats can be traced to human actions, education plays a significant role in improving and maintaining the future quality of our precious lakes. Education of watershed residents and lake users can have the most significant impact on the present and future water quality throughout the watershed – this education is a primary focus of WACF.

If you have any questions regarding the WACF Education programs, please e-mail Education@wacf.com.

This special 41 acre preserve once provided the outflow of Dillon Creek into the Johnson Bay/Wawasee wetlands and headwaters.
