Turtle River Watershed Association Map

The Turtle River Watershed encompasses an area made up of eleven lakes, connected by the Turtle River. Parts of Liberty, Northern, Port Hope, Turtle Lake, and Turtle River townships are included.

The water quality of our lakes is affected by everything we do in and around them. We hope to keep our lakes healthy for fish and wildlife, and safe for fishing and swimming forever and for all
