Description

100% of your donation to the Conserve An Acre program will be used to fund the implementation of conservation practices on agricultural land in the Yahara watershed. Once the conservation practice has been implemented, you will receive an update of the difference your donation made including photos and the estimated amount of phosphorus and algae reduced through your specific contribution.

Buffer Strips – For every acre of buffer strips you invest in, a pound of phosphorus runoff is reduced from entering our waterways. Each pound of phosphorus is equivalent to 500 pounds of algae. Thank you for conserving our farmland and waterways in the Yahara watershed!

Cover Crops – For every acre of cover crops you invest in, a pound of phosphorus runoff is reduced from entering our waterways. Each pound of phosphorus is equivalent to 500 pounds of algae. Thank you for conserving our farmland and waterways in the Yahara watershed!

Your gift is welcome and needed and will go toward protecting the Yahara watershed. Donors who make a gift at the $1,000 or more level are recognized each year through Clean Lakes Alliance’s Yahara Society.

You may show your support for our lakes by requesting a yard sign when you check out, or make a donation in as a gift or in memory of a loved one.
