Do you care about Cedar Lake, the water quality, fish size, and shoreline beauty?


The Cedar Lake Conservancy’s only focus is preserving the quality of our lake.  It is not a homeowners’ association and cannot in any way micro-manage your home/cabin/property with its own rules and regulations.  Aitkin and Crow Wing Counties are quite happy to do that.

Why donate?

Because you care about the environment, water quality, fish size, shoreline beauty and how the lake is used…not just for yourself but future generations, too.

Lakefront property owners can accomplish more as a group than individually.  It’s more efficient and less expensive to prevent lake issues rather than repair damage afterwards, i.e. water clarity, invasive aquatic species, etc.  Clean water increases lakeshore property value (Bemidji State University study showed a direct link between the two).  Once a lake reaches a certain point of degradation, it can never be brought back to where it once was.

The Conservancy - What do we do???
fosters a sense of community with the same goal of protecting our valuable resource.

works with the sheriff’s office on water safety issues, placement/maintenance of buoys on the lake and no wake zones.

works with the DNR on yearly fish counts, beaver issues, etc.

through a strictly volunteer system of property owners monitors the public landing, water quality, noxious weeds such as Eurasian milfoil, zebra mussels and other invasive species.

educates lake residents and those in its watershed.

maximizes partnership opportunities with other conservation organizations, the state and county.

influences and participates in local government decisions affecting the lake or its watershed.

What will my donation go to?

DNR enforcement for invasive species at the Cedar Lake public access.
