Support the Lake Observer App and Global Lake Research!

Your volunteer effort and generous support for Lake Observer and the Global Lake Ecological Observatory Network (GLEON) helps our global network to understand, predict and communicate the role and response of lakes in a changing global environment.

GLEON is building a worldwide network of instrumented buoys on lakes, as well as tools such as the Lake Observer mobile app, in order to place critical information at the fingertips of researchers, managers and the general public.

GLEON's research environment fosters collaboration across disciplines and political boundaries. GLEON is actively creating an international community of scientists, educators, policy makers and citizens who care about lakes and are invested in the future of freshwater.

You can support Lake Observer and GLEON's global network of people, lakes and data by making a secure, online donation through the PayPal account of the Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies, a U.S.-based non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation.
