Advocates for a Clean Lake Erie works as if the water emergency of August 2014 is ongoing, in order to vigorously safeguard the health of our lake.
We conduct public education and actions to expose the environmental threats caused by animal factories and other sources.
We pressure government officials to get an impaired watershed designation for Western Lake Erie, followed by a thorough cleanup, so Lake Erie will remain healthy for all the life that depends on it.
