Restore & Preserve

The mission of the Friends of Lower Lake is to restore and preserve native plants and wildlife at Lower Lake park and the surrounding Doan Brook Watershed.

Meet with the Community

We convene, educate, inspire, and collaborate with our community in the shared belief that all benefit from an ecologically healthy native habitat in our cities. We honor the past and improve the present while creating a better future for our community in balance with nature.

Regular Work Sessions

To implement our mission, the Friends organize regular work sessions to:

  • Remove invasive species

  • Plant native species

  • Maintain pathways and manage water drainage

  • Collaborate with local nonprofits, governments, and regulatory agencies

  • Present free educational talks by local experts

  • Create prototype native plant gardens

  • Participate in meetings held by partnering stakeholders

  • Disseminate information via newsletters, Facebook, articles, and conversations

  • Raise funds through grants and individuals for the program
