10 Tips for Improved Lakeshore Stewardship from US EPA

Welcome!

Save The Lakes was founded as the only statewide organization dedicated to the preservation and protection of Rhode Islandís lakes, ponds and fresh water resources.† We provide a forum for education, discussion and action on lake-related issues; we advocate for better fresh water management policies at the local, state and federal levels.

Save The Lakes (STL) is managed entirely by volunteers and is a 501(c)3 qualified non-profit organization. We are supported almost exclusively through membership dues and donations, which are fully tax deductable. Members are encouraged to join one of STL's committees to become actively engaged in critical issues and interesting challenges, while gaining valuable information on lake and watershed issues (and even have some fun!)

Save The Lakes members receive information on current and critical lake issues through email communications, access to environmental agency personnel at forums and workshops, and opportunities to network with other members at events. If you are a permanent or part-time lake area residents, recreational lake user, lake area or lake dependent business, we encourage you to join STL and support our efforts for YOUR lake's sake!

Rhode Island lakes and ponds,
beautfiul in any season!
