Working Landscapes

Working to better Lake County's watersheds and people...

 Natural resources are at the core of Lake County's economy, making the preservation of lakes, streams, forestlands, and rangelands a priority for all. However, this is not driven by economic interests alone--as there is major ecological significance too. 

Developing, yet protecting our county's natural resources are practices central to sustaining our rural communities for years to come. 

Formed in the mid-90s, the Lake County Watershed Councils are made up of local residents who assist local landowners in  

 improving and promoting the health of local watersheds.

Lake County is made up of multiple, diverse watersheds, which are included in the management boundaries of the Lake County Umbrella Watershed Council.
