Tender loving care is important for people, communities, and even lakes! Join our second annual Lake Care Weekend to help support a watershed-wide effort in reducing debris, trash, and leaf litter that makes its way from the stormdrain to a waterbody. 

Visit to find your nearest drain, give it a fun name, and get started on lake care! Adopt-a-Drain helps us track the results of how much debris is spared from lakes, streams, and wetlands, so be sure to enter your estimated results on the website. Last year, residents just like you reported 489.4 lbs. of debris cleaned from stormdrains. Will you help us break this record for 2020?

 Yard signs are available for order for a small price from the Adopt-a-Drain website. Residents who adopt a drain in the Goose Lake sub-watershed will receive a free "We protect Goose Lake" sign delivered to their door. Help spread the word by posting these signs in your yard or in the grass above the drain!
