Environmental Awareness

The lakes and rivers of Southern Wisconsin play a vital role in the quality of life for all the region's citizens.  It takes a concerted effort on the parts of all who live and play on these waters to keep them healthy and clean for our generation and the next.  The U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary is committed to the protection and preservation of our local maritime environment.

The links below are intended to serve as a source of information about environmental initiatives taking place within the Yahara lake and river system.
