Get Involved

Friends of Catherine and Chanel Lakes needs your help in two ways – money and time. We are seeking funding for this effort as well as volunteers who can take action and help to spread the word about the cause to other members of the community.  If you are interested in helping, please contact us.

In year one, working with Integrated Lakes Management, Friends of Catherine and Channel Lakes created a detailed Lake Management Plan. This plan identifies the precise issues affecting the lake environment and provides remedies. This plan has been reviewed by the EPA, Illinois Department of Natural Resources and the Fox Waterway Agency, and, with funding, will be implemented over many years.

Our primary goal is to improve the water quality in Lake Catherine and Channel Lake, and we encourage all who care about the environment, Illinois, the Chain O’Lakes and the Fox River Watershed to join the effort.
