Connecting our Community
We are a non-profit 501c3 organization that advocates for all things water in Ohio. Great Lakes to Grand Rivers, there are so many ways to make your life a water life. We are here to create a platform for our region to share knowledge and connect with programs and places on the water throughout the heartland. On the Water Ohio is supported by the Lake Erie Marine Trades Association, the Boating Association of Ohio, along with grant funds, local and regional maritime businesses and private donors.
Stay tuned for more on how you can get involved with our water focused volunteer and environmental projects in your area. Follow us our social channels and share your story of how you get On The Water Ohio!
Magic in the Water
The sun glistening against the rolling waves, and the warm breeze in the air can quickly remind you of the good times. A memory of your first sail along the shoreline; setting foot on a beach you once visited every summer; fishing with your siblings. The view of water can quickly bring a smile to your face. For those living in Northeast Ohio, we get to experience that magic almost every day with our view of beautiful Lake Erie. Pair our Great Lake with over 100 inland lakes and Ohio proves that water and magic, are never far away. Good vibes aside, our waterways also contribute to Ohio’s economic and social impact. The lakes, rivers, and streams serve as a means of transportation for goods, serve as a source of recreation and provide a natural habitat for many Ohio wildlife, creating jobs and conservation programs throughout the state. We’re proud of our waterways, and we hope you are too.
