What We Do
"Eagle Lake is a valuable resource for the recreation and natural beauty it affords all of us.  Preserving the quality of the lake is important because it is the centerpiece of our community, providing us all with intangible positive experiences.  It may be a walk near the water, paddling a kayak or canoe, fishing, or just sitting by the water enjoying the view – we all enjoy the lake in our own way.  As stewards of Eagle Lake, it is our responsibility to protect and enhance this precious resource – today, and in the future."  Brian Younger, ELIA Board Member
