Preserve and Protect Your Treasured Lake Owen

DNR grant funds that have supported efforts of the Lake Owen Association to preserve and protect Lake Owen will run out before the end of 2022!

Lake Owen has been described by the Wisconsin DNR as “Wisconsin’s Healthiest Lake.” In 2021, the DNR rating of Lake Owen’s fish and aquatic life was “excellent.” You can help keep it that way by making a donation or pledge today!

The Lake Owen Association has a donor who has pledged up to $100,000 to match new pledges/donations to the Lake Owen Association Preservation and Protection Endowment Fund received before December 31, 2021. To maintain current efforts, our goal is to raise $2,500,000.

The biggest expense in keeping Lake Owen as Wisconsin’s Healthiest Lake is preventing invasive species. Invasive plants and animals cause damage to natural systems by displacing native species. To name just a few immediate and nearby threats: Zebra Mussels are found in Lake Superior and Big McKenzie Lake in Washburn County, and Eurasian Water Milfoil is present in Lake Namakagon, Lake Hayward, and Big Round Lake.

We need YOU to help the Lake Owen Association keep Lake Owen the “Healthiest Lake” by making a tax deductible 501(c)(3) donation or pledge to the Lake Owen Association Preservation and Protection Endowment Fund.

If you do this before the end of the year, matching funding can double the amount received.
