Lake Stewards understand their own water use, catchment, conservation, water quality,
and other important water related areas. They look for ways to practice lake friendly living through
advanced gardening and land management practices. These practices include and go beyond those
at the Pledge level. They may be larger projects that require more expertise and resources.
Lake Stewards engage in these meaningful individual actions and also
collective actions that benefit people and nature.

participate. Thank you for your pledge!
