Support the CFL

Photo Zebra Mussels
To help the public track the invasion in space and time, the CFL has put together an online tool that provides interactive maps to see the transformation happening just beneath the waves of Lake Mendota.

Individual support for the UW-Madison Center for Limnology is critical for sustaining and growing our programs.

Your gift directly helps the Center for Limnology:

  • Sustain scientific leadership in the fields of limnology and freshwater sciences
  • Support top-notch graduate and undergraduate student training
  • Expand our outreach and communication efforts to non-scientific audiences
  • Conduct research on the Madison lakes and at Trout Lake Station

Thank you for supporting the Center for Limnology!
