Researching, educating, and collaborating
The Lilly Center for Lakes & Streams conducts research, provides resources, engages and educates residents, and collaborates with local organizations to make the freshwater lakes and streams of Kosciusko County clean, healthy, safe, and beautiful.
Diligent & Strategic
Due to the Lilly Center’s diligent, strategic work, the lakes and streams in Kosciusko County are some of the best-studied in the state of Indiana. We have a storehouse of valuable data that shows patterns and trends in the health of our lakes, which in turn reveal specific action steps. The center also contributes science-based curricula to several local schools. Planned activities and in-house field trips give students and teachers a memorable, tangible way to positively impact creation. Through community-wide events, we also connect with families and individuals from every corner of the county. The Lilly Center serves, inspires and educates, and creates generational pathways to leadership and creation stewardship.
We are a team of lake-science and outdoor-education enthusiasts, and we consistently craft standard-exceeding, data-rooted content for those in kindergarten through retirement.
Our Student Team
Since it’s founding, the Lilly Center has relied on the hard work of our student team members. They enhance the work already done by regular staff and enable us to reach a wider audience.
