We strive to protect the environmental health of Clear Lake for use by the community and as a natural habitat. The CLSA aids in the regeneration and sustainability of Clear Lake through monitoring, education and communication.
The CLSA works in partnership with the town of Espanola, the property owners and the residents of Clear Lake and all levels of government to promote good stewardship practices.

Once again we hosted an amazing yard sale and raised a little over $1000.....Awesome, awesome, awesome
Where to start with the thank -you's. So many were involved - if I forget anyone - my heart felt apologies.
First, I want to thank the Town of Espanola for once again giving us permission to use Clear Lake Beach Park - it is the PERFECT location. The Towns ongoing support and encouragement of our efforts is appreciated.
Second, our thanks to the Espanola Curling Club for letting us use their tables so that we can display our wares - it has a real impact on our results.
Third - Meryl and Steve Canjar for supplying coffee for our volunteers and drop in guests - we are so grateful for that contribution - it is so warming and it is amazing how people will collect around a cup of McDonald's coffee.
Speaking of volunteers......Thank you Gary for giving us a warm place to price and sort the donations. Our pricers, sorters and wrappers - Kim, Debbie, Gary & Brianna - a long afternoon - thank you for your skill and your time.
As always thank you Dennis, Brian and Greg who ran the roads for "stuff" pretty much on command then provided an abundant amount of supervision while Brinley maned the BBQ. Many thanks Brinley for your participation - you did a fabulous job - I would say the hot dogs were the best ever but I don't want to hurt Brian or Greg's feelings.
Our thanks always to our BBQ benefactors - FreshCo, Tanner's and Giant Tiger. The ongoing support we receive from our local merchants is amazing
Then there our salespeople; they did a beyond fabulous job - from set up to tear down - Debbie, Gary, Kathy, Brianna, Heather and of course Steve- our consummate deal maker. It was a long day and your hard work is so appreciated.
Thank you too Pat - our money collector and Dennis - our money…Continue
