OUR MISSION

The Mission of the TLA is to Preserve, Protect, and Promote Tenmile Lakes and its Waters and Watershed.

 

FOCUS AREA

The Areas of Focus are the Lakes and Streams Making Up the Tenmile Lakes Watershed. The Locations Consist of North and South Tenmile Lakes, Tenmile and Eel Creek, Eel and Hall Lakes, and Any Other Body of Water or Stream within the Tenmile Lakes Watershed.

 

OUR CONCERNS

Tenmile Lakes and its Waters are Declining in Quantity and Quality for Public/Private/ Commercial Use and Recreation.  Solutions Must be Found to Reverse this Declining Trend for this Very Important Natural Resource that is Vitally Important to the Residents and Communities of North Coos County as well as all Commercial, Private, and Public Interests and Uses.

ADVOCACY

The TLA is working to be an Active Advocate for the Improvement in the Quantity and Quality of Tenmile Lakes and its Waters/Watershed with All Public Agencies: Including Local Governments, Coos and Douglas Counties, State of Oregon, USA and Native Americans, and any Other Groups of Interested Parties and Public Policy Making/Political Bodies.

 
Lyndon B. Johnson

"If future generations are to remember us with gratitude rather than contempt, we must leave them something more than the miracles of technology. We must leave them a glimpse of the world as it was in the beginning, not just after we got through with it."
