Glen Lake Association Receives National Award
Recognized for Outreach and Education in Fish Habitat Conservation

Lawton Gallagher Group Press Release

Washington, D.C.- The Glen Lake Association has received a 2011 National Fish Habitat Action Plan (NFHAP) Award – one of four winners selected from organizations throughout the United States. The award honors associations for their extraordinary achievement in Fish Habitat Conservation.

This is the second recognition for the Glen Lake Association (GLA) in the past three years: the organization was given the “Michigan Inland Lake Steward of the Year Award” by the Michigan Lake and Stream Associations in 2008.

A grassroots organization for over 50 years with 800 individual and business members, the Glen Lake Association uses numerous outreach and educational campaigns to protect the Glen Lake watershed from aquatic invasive species, physical habitat degradation, and water quality impairment while promoting aesthetic and recreational enjoyment to riparians and the public.

GLA lake biologist Rob Karner said the Fish Habitat Action Plan Award is the result of several association initiatives that work cohesively to protect the watershed and its surrounding natural resources.

Michigan Lake and Stream Associations congratulates Glen Lake Association of this significant stewardship and conservation achievement!
