I’m considering buying property in Winona Lake, Indiana. Has your organization been doing anything to keep the lakes healthy? I want to make sure I am making a sound investment.

Dear Real Estate Investor,
How exciting! Winona Lake is wonderful! The Watershed Foundation is involved in a lot of work to improve water quality in Winona Lake!
This article describes a recent agricultural project: https://watershedfoundation.org/blog/first-major-agricultural-project-in-warsaw-winona-area-completed/
And this website showcases where we’ve done similar projects throughout the area – https://healthysoilscleanwater.org/
This article provides information about a new grant that we were awarded for the work we’re going in this area: https://watershedfoundation.org/blog/grant-is-a-good-start-for-the-warsaw-area/
Both of these showcase a project we did at the beautiful Winona Lake Limitless Park.
In addition, the Lilly Center for Lakes & Streams has a website with past & current water monitoring data for Winona Lake. https://lakes.grace.edu/lake/winona-lake/
Note: Keeping our lakes clean has a direct impact on our economy. If you’re going to be in town, I invite you to stop by and visit the Smithsonian Water|Ways exhibit. We also have a Water|Ways program on this very topic presented by Nate Bosch on July 20th, 2021. We hope to see you there. To learn more click here.
