Water, nibi, is the fountain of life. Ocean water is the same constitution of human blood, without the hemoglobin. Everything that happens on the land is reflected in the water, much like what we consume and how we live is reflected in notable in our blood. The Land Between has over 2700 pocketed lakes; the majority without buffering capacity of soils and climate to neutralize inputs. Walk in any direction in this region and within 500m, you will encounter a source of water. It is essential for our overall health to steward, sustain, and conserve these precious and vital resources.
The Land Between works extensively with partners from research institutions, educational institutions, to community groups and lake associations to steward our water. We offer shoreline owner site visits, naturalization expertise and designs, and larger efforts to reach these goals: Check out our latest projects and efforts here
