Programs

Did you know that the Great Lakes are the biggest freshwater source in the world? Lake Erie is the most productive for fishing of all the Great Lakes. Your support helps make our streams clean, clear and healthy so they can support this complex ecosystem. By donating to PCS, you help us reach our goals of restoring rivers that lead to Lake Erie beaches that promote fishable and swimmable conditions for generations.

Grant funding from this program has allowed us to expand our Clean Your Streams programing, and the additional work is paying off. Please take a look at the article and be proud of the work we have done together!
