FOLA is a citizen advocacy group focused on restoring Lake Apopka to its once pristine condition.
Once a fishing paradise known for its trophy bass, Lake Apopka endured nearly 5 decades of pollution along its shores, creating one of Florida's most polluted lakes.
We 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.
Board meetings are typically held the second Thursday of every month at 6:00 pm at the Oakland Nature Preserve, and are open to the public.
