Welcome to Three Lakes Association!

Our Mission

The mission of the Three Lakes Association is to provide leadership to preserve, protect, and improve the environmental quality of the Elk River Chain of Lakes Watershed for all generations with emphasis on Lake Bellaire, Clam Lake, Torch Lake and their tributaries.

Since 1966, the Three Lakes Association (TLA) has been actively engaged in a variety of ways which support our mission. From monitoring water quality to actively engaging with our local and state governments to providing grants for local science education in our schools, TLA has worked to insure that our lakes will remain the wonderful natural resource that we all love and enjoy.

This website contains a wide variety of information on our current and past projects. Please explore the many documents which are available under ‘Projects and Reports’. Our Newsletters are also available, going back to 2004, providing a rich history of our activity.
