PREPARED FOR
THE FUTURE?

Living in or enjoying a lake community has some exceptional advantages.  But with these advantages come some unique responsibilities.  

Proper management of the lake, its connecting streams and their watershed is necessary.  Will the problems of today be the same problems of tomorrow?  The way in which we approach these issues will pave the future of Lake St. Helen.  

Today our lake is being threatened by exotic species not native to this area.  One of these intruders is Zebra Mussels.  Many others are poised to do harm to our beautiful lake.  We must constantly be on guard, communicating with one another regarding these threats.  Being a member of the St. Helen Lake Association is one way of doing this.  

Dealing with these issues and many others can be an overwhelming task for an individual.  But working with an organized group, that shares a common interest, can make short work out of the most difficult problems.  

This is why your input and support is needed.  We need to plan for tomorrow, but we need to do it today!!

Join us and make a difference; Make your voice heard!  Your support and membership in the ST. HELEN LAKE ASSOCIATION will insure that you will have a say in the Lake and have an impact in the St. Helen area!
