CADDO LAKE INSTITUTE
Caddo Lake Institute is proud to work with local communities, organizations and others to protect the unique treasure that is Caddo Lake. Together we are addressing issues such as the need to return healthy flows of water to Caddo Lake, restore water quality in the watershed, control invasive species, and conserve significant lands. That work has included the designation of wetlands at Caddo Lake as “Wetlands of International Importance” under the Ramsar Convention, an international treaty created in 1971. A healthy watershed supports wildlife and animal habitats, recreation and the local economy.
