Lake Pepin is a natural lake along the Mississippi River that is filling with sediment and absorbing excess nutrients leading to eutrophication. As a critical ecological and community resource, it is imperative that we work together to protect its legacy. Sign up to receive our newsletter or become a member, and get involved!
United Lake Pepin.
Let's unite our collective love for Lake Pepin by sharing the stories and faces behind this natural treasure. It is time to draw attention to the central role the lake plays in our lives, our business, and our overall well-being. We are calling on everybody - fishermen, birders, rock climbers, bikers, boaters, environmentalists, educators, business owners, tourists, residents, day trippers, and more. Share your stories and pictures from Lake Pepin so everybody knows its unique and far-reaching importance.
Consider sharing your stories and/or photos with LPLA by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, visiting a local LPLA event, or using the hashtag #MyLakePepin on social media.
Celebrate Lake Pepin!
LPLA is having an open community potluck in Stockholm, WI to celebrate Lake Pepin on October 21st. We will share our favorite Lake Pepin stories, enjoy some the best food the Midwest has to offer, and mingle with friends. LPLA will also have its first tee-shirt available for any new memberships and year-end contributions (also available online). Plus, most LPLA staff and board members will be there to answer any questions you might have about Lake Pepin, the Restoration Project, or otherwise.
A citizen effort to document the health of Lake Pepin. Take photos of erosion, drainage, algae blooms, pollution, and other signs of an unhealthy lake. Then post the photos to the appropriate map location! Contributing with a smart phone will allow you to snap and post while automatically linking photos to the map.
We are pleased to announce the launch of "We Live in the Lake" a music video that entertains and informs viewers about Lake Pepin sedimentation. What can you do? As the song says, you can "Join the LPLA crew"-the Lake Pepin Legacy Alliance-to restore the health of our lake.
