Since its founding in 1974, the Cedar Lakes Conservation Foundation (CLCF) has partnered with property owners, conservation partners, and the community to conserve over 2,800 acres of land in our mission area within the Cedar Lakes region. CLCF envisions a future landscape that maintains a balance between natural and developed areas where important natural functions and features are preserved for all time. Our waters, fields, farms, and forests are essential for our well-being and the health of our environment.
