COLA Mission

The purposes of the Courte Oreilles Lakes Association, Inc. (COLA) are (1) to protect, preserve and enhance the quality of the Courte Oreilles Lakes, their shorelands and surrounding areas, while respecting the interests of property owners and the rights of the general public, and (2) to consider, study, survey and respond to issues deemed relevant by the membership of the organization. The Courte Oreilles Lakes consist of Lac Courte Oreilles and Little Lac Courte Oreilles, both located in Sawyer County, Wisconsin.

“What happens in the water upstream will make its way to LCO.
The cooperation of the whole watershed is critical.”
