City of Toledo and Toledo Metropolitan Area Council of Governments officials announced a new website Tuesday, designed to encourage people to make better choices that affect Lake Erie and its tributaries.

The website, toledolakeerie.clearchoicescleanwater.org, includes educational content and pledge-making capabilities regarding native plants and rain gardens; lawns and fertilizers; how children can be environmental; pet waste, and volunteer opportunities.
