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!

It's that time of year again, tis the season to update your landscape and tend to your garden! This year, aim for a more environmentally friendly landscape. Traditional lawns require various fertilizers, herbicides, maintence, and an abundance of water resources. To transform your garden and landscape, aim to include native plants or a rain garden. Both provide necessary habitat for pollinators and reduce the need for maintenace and water use. Check out our native plants & pollinators page to learn more about what YOU can do to PROTECT your surrounding ecosystem.
