Your Lakes Need YOU. Today.

Welcome to IISD Experimental Lakes Area—a Canadian gem and a world-class research centre for freshwater science!

Fifty-eight small lakes in Ontario, Canada serve as natural laboratories where we discover the effects of everything from climate change, algal blooms, pollution, and other serious threats to fresh water. Learn more here.

And YOU can help ensure that legacy for future generations.

We need YOUR support to secure our future, build up the site and steward these unique lakes.
