Lake George Association - More Than 130 Years Of Protecting Lake George

The Lake George Association has played a pivotal role in Lake George history

For more than a century, the Lake George Association has protected the water as the guardian of Lake George. We focus on the Lake’s prized, clear drinking water and protecting the watershed (the land area from the tops of the mountains surrounding it to the shoreline). We have educated tens of thousands of residents and visitors on how their actions can be protective of Lake George and its watershed.

Through hard work and collaboration, the Lake George Association has protected the Lake for more than a century.

We come by the job honestly. Since 1885 we have protected the Lake and everything in it. In fact, the Lake George Association was the very first lake conservation organization in the United States.

Through the decades, the Lake George Association has been part of the solution (in some cases, the LGA delivered THE solution to protect Lake George). Our projects have tackled many of the Lake’s problems over the years, including banning phosphorus, updating stormwater protections, developing and implementing the Lake Steward program that evolved into the Lake George Park Commission’s Boat Inspection Program.

Our organization is one of action, focused on:

We solve problems through shared discussion, hard work on the ground, and serious financial investment in the present for the future.

Our work is made possible by membership dues, donations and volunteer hours. Our work reflects the love that our members feel for Lake George and the knowledge that, for many families, Lake George is where they feel most at home no matter what their permanent address is.
