Help us protect our beloved Lake Eugenia for years to come

News Update
Summer 2023

We are now in Phase 2 of the Water Quality Study and Hutchinson Environmental is busy collecting samples all over Lake Eugenia. These activities will build-upon Phase 1, with the goal of ultimately understanding the underlying cause of the algal blooms.

Who We Are

Friends of Lake Eugenia is a non-profit organization established by Lake Eugenia residents Doug Hill and Morgan Anderson. Our goal is to help preserve the natural environment of Lake Eugenia and protect its waters for years to come. We are a group of passionate residents who are taking action and building partnerships to prevent the degradation of the water quality of our lake.

Why We Care

The water quality of Lake Eugenia has been noticeably impacted over the last several years, leading to numerous beach closures during the summer months. From e-coli to algae bloom spikes, the conservation issues that we face can negatively impact the local ecosystem, including habitat loss of local wildlife and increased water toxicity of a valuable freshwater resource.


We Need You!


We are a volunteer-run organization made up of concerned citizens and we've partnered with a environmental consulting firm to help us find the causes of the decline in water quality at Lake Eugenia.


We're fundraising an initial $50,000 for the Phase 2 portion of the study. If you'd like to donate please visit our GoFundMe page or send your donation via e-transfer to

We're happy to issue you a tax receipt for your donation. Please reach out to us if you'd like one and we'll make sure you have it for the upcoming tax season.
