Welcome to Clear Choices Clean Water - Greater Toledo Lake Erie

Clear Choices, Clean Water - Greater Toledo Lake Erie is a campaign to increase awareness about choices we make and the impact we have on our streams and lakes. Water friendly practices such as using phosphorus-free fertilizer, landscaping with native plants, managing yard and pet wastes, and volunteering to clean up our waterways help make clear clean water available to us. Even small actions can have a big impact on our waterways, so the choice is clear: take a pledge for clean water today!

Each month, we will feature a specific content area to highlight even more ways to get involved while connecting you with partners who can help your pledges be a success. March is the first Native Plants and Pollinators month of 2018! Did you know that native plants have deeper roots than non-native plants? This means that native plants allow more water to infiltrate the ground instead of running off, providing benefits to water quality by holding and processing nutrients and contaminants before they have a chance to reach our waterways. Visit the Native Plants pages to learn more, take a pledge to include native plants in your yard, visit our partners featured on each page, and follow us on social media for daily updates and events!
