Our Mission & Purpose
FOLA is a citizen advocacy group focused on restoring Florida's 30,000-acre lake to its once pristine condition.
Once a world renowned fishing paradise known for its trophy bass, Lake Apopka endured nearly 5 decades of poor farming practices along its shores, creating one of Florida's largest polluted lakes.
We began advocating for the lake's restoration in 1991 and have seen great progress over the last 20 years, but we still need your support!
Join TODAY and be a part of one of the greatest environmental success stories of our time.
Held the second Thursday of every month at 5:30 pm and are open to the public.
