Freshwater Future is a powerful resource investing in the people and communities caring for our Great Lakes waters. With a focus on community groups, we provide professional assistance, funding and access to a broad network of resources and information. Once known as the Sweetwater Seas, the Great Lakes comprise the largest source of fresh water in the world. Our family memories, our history and our heritage are all linked to the Great lakes landscape. But, these cherished waters are being damaged by untreated sewage, industrial pollutants and invasive species. Now, more than ever, it is critical that we work together to ensure the health of the Great Lakes for our children, grandchildren and future generations. Make a Difference! Join Freshwater Future. We all share responsibility for the future of our Great Lakes community. By supporting Freshwater Future, you are directly supporting community efforts to protect and preserve Great Lakes waterways and wetlands.
