Eau Claire Lakes Conservation Club

UPDATE:  The Eau Claire Lakes Conservation Club has decided to postpone all Conservation Club activites due to COVID-19. This will include KDF box placement, and newsletter publication and distribution. Pontoon trailer rentals are available. When the the restrictive official response to the COVID-19 pandemic is removed, we will re-evaluate our options and keep you informed.  Any questions, contact Fred Kawell, 715-379-1553.  Stay safe, and stay healthy.

The Eau Claire Lakes Conservation Club has been active in Barnes and Gordon for 60 years. The organization is devoted to maintaining the area's natural resources for all to enjoy. Each year the club initiates and participates in projects to preserve, protect and promote the land and waters of the Eau Claire Lakes area. Read the newsletters listed below to learn more about current projects.
