Our Progress



We need YOU to join CLA Lake Riders as we team up to combat climate change and help preserve the future of Chautauqua Lake! 

Please consider joining our team by registering TODAY for the Green Fondo at Chautauqua Institution on September 16 - 18, 2022 where we will pedal to raise funds and awareness for clean energy, good science, the environment, and beautiful Chautauqua Lake. 

How can you help? 

While this cycling event is not timed, we are in a race against the clock to make a difference. By showing your support of the CLA Lake Riders you will help us serve as advocates for the environment while raising critical funds that support efforts to slow the effects of climate change and preserve Chautauqua Lake for future generations. 

The CLA has provided environmentally friendly lake maintenance services to Chautauqua Lake while supporting good science for nearly 70 years. Our actions assist homeowners with near shore needs, provide harvesting in areas of heavy vegetation, offer AIS spread prevention & education, and monitor water quality and HABs. These CLA programs allow us to offer a safe, usable lake for the enjoyment of all lake users.

You don’t have to be a cyclist to become a team member. There is a non-peddling option with tons of fun activities while keeping your feet on the ground that raises money for our cause.


Please click the ROSTER tab and select a CLA Team Participant that you would like to support, which will help our team reach our fundraising goal. As an organization that cares deeply about the environment, the Chautauqua Lake Association is proud to partner with the Climate Ride to address the challenges of climate change. Their mission to instill positive action through a sustainable outdoor experience falls in line with our work to monitor, study, promote and protect Chautauqua Lake’s ecosystem. Your donation makes it possible for us to continue this important work.
