Thanks for Supporting Lake George!
THANK YOU so very much for everything you have done in the last two weeks!
We are awaiting final results of the BoatUS Foundation grant vote (the Lake George Association's grant application was ahead in the final minutes of voting).
The Foundation is reviewing votes to ensure they were fair and accurate (one vote per person per day). As soon as we know something, we'll let you know.
We know that if we did win the grant that it was because of all of the support that we received from those who love Lake George. We are humbled and we thank you.
Who is the Lake George Association?
We are the Lake George Association – we protect Lake George water.
We develop and perform in-the-ground projects (stormwater control, pollution control, erosion control) dedicated to keeping Lake George’s water pure, and we develop and deliver educational materials (delivered in school, to homeowners and on the Lake with our Floating Classroom) aimed at informing students and residents about what actions they can take to keep Lake George water clean and healthy.
Our latest video: Stop Aquatic Hitchhikers: Clean, Drain, Dry. Learn how to clean and decontaminate your boat, fishing and recreational equipment before you use it in a body of water.
Established in 1885, the LGA is the oldest lake association in the nation. Over the years, our balanced approach to lake management has helped ensure the Lake's exceptional water quality, as well as the environmental and economic viability of the entire watershed.
Our action-based programs are designed to conserve one of the most pristine and beautiful natural resources in our nation. A full-time staff, alongside countless members and community partners, are working hard today to protect Lake George water for tomorrow. The staff specializes in communications, education, Geographic Information Systems, land use management, nuisance species control, stormwater project management and water quality.
The Lake George Association is a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization dedicated to protecting, conserving and improving the beauty and quality of Lake George. With the support of a large membership that includes families, visitors, businesses, and seasonal and full-time residents, today’s LGA is very active in three main program areas:
Education of residents and visitors of all ages;
- Outreach into communities about lake-friendly living; and
- Lake saving projects to remedy existing water quality problems.
