Making It Happen!

Ensuring our future requires
that we do some things now.

The health and well-being of our community is linked to the health of the natural world around us.  The Belgrade Lakes are now under attack from harmful algae and invasive plants, and the open spaces we hold dear – both wetlands and highlands – are under constant threat of development. Remedying these problems before they do great damage will require more cooperation, increased collaboration, and far greater resources to insure that our children and grandchildren enjoy the pristine lakes and lands of our youth, that our natural resources-based economy continues to flourish, and that the Belgrade Lakes Region remains a healthy and uniquely beautiful place to live, grow, and enjoy a high quality of life. 

Your Donation to 7 Lakes Alliance is the most important gift you can make to ensure the ecological, recreational, and economic vitality of the Belgrade Lakes Region. The vibrancy of our local economy and quality of life is ensured by every dollar invested in 7 Lakes Alliance.  The return on your investment yields essential conservation and protection of the natural resources that are the lifeblood of the Belgrades. Our work is made possible through gifts, grants, and partner contributions from a variety of sources.
