Lake Pepin is a vital component of the Mississippi River system, as well as a place of natural beauty, tight-knit river communities, and a critical resource for many wildlife species. The health of Lake Pepin is at a critical tipping point, and we rely heavily on the support of our members and donors to do our work to advocate for its future. 

The Lake Pepin Legacy Alliance (LPLA) is the only organization solely focused on protecting this stretch of the Mississippi River. We advocate for upstream sediment reduction and local lake management to improve water quality, habitat, and accessibility. Recently, we successfully championed the 2023 Bay City Habitat Restoration Project, a years-long campaign to dredge a navigation channel and use the material to create island habitats at the head of Lake Pepin. 

From November 1 to December 31, you can double your donation and impact. Every dollar raised (up to $10,000) will be matched thanks to the generosity of the Albrecht-Poss Family Foundation. 

Public support, like yours, accounts for nearly half of our work and enables us to advocate for Lake Pepin every single day. Thank you for loving the lake and river!
