Protecting the Land that Protects the Lake since 1988


LGLC News for November 2021

Group of 12 men and women stand in front of the Amy's Park sign. They are employees of Novo Nordisk, and volunteered for the day at Amy's Park on November 15.

Thank You, Volunteers!

The trails at Amy's Park got a shiny new accessory - reflective trail markers - thanks to an amazing crew of volunteers from Novo Nordisk. On Monday, they divided and conquered, covering more than 5 miles of trails to remove old markers and replace them with our new markers that are more user friendly, especially to those who have a color vision deficiency.

These new markers SAY the color on them, so there's no guessing if you're on the right trail. We will eventually switch all of the LGLC trails to these new markers - if you get out and see the new markers, let us know what you think!

We also thank all of our many volunteers who help in so many ways, year-round! Hundreds of volunteers put in thousands of hours of their time to help with the Hike-A-Thon and Amy's Race, fundraising events and database work, special committees, trail stewardship and invasive species management. Thank you!

Thank You, Community Businesses!

We have a pretty amazing community of supporters who choose to give back to the lake they love by donating products or portions of proceeds from their sales, or holding special offers that benefit the LGLC. From limited edition beer, product raffles (like the one in the image above from I Wear Local), to beautiful calendars showcasing Lake George and the Adirondacks (get yours for 2022!), branded gifts on our online store and more, these businesses and individuals are giving in their own unique ways.

Thank You, Conservation Partners!

We often work alongside community partners who assist with conservation projects - organizations like the Warren County Soil and Water Conservation District, Adirondack Park Invasive Plant Program (APIPP), NYS Department of Environmental Conservation, the NYS Hemlock Initiative, Up Yonda Farm Environmental Education Center, and more.

Protecting the Lake is a team effort, involving conservation, education, research, and outreach. When we all lend our strengths, we can achieve great things for the future of the Lake!

Thank you for joining us at events like the Hike-A-Thon!

Thank You for Joining Us!

Our land is our greatest ambassador, instilling an appreciation for its protection and the scenic beauty of Lake George in everyone who uses it. When you join us for an event at our parks and preserves or venture out on your own, you are helping to keep that appreciation alive - and if you bring a friend or family member, you are sharing that appreciation with those who can carry it on to others. Plus, by using the trails you are showing just how needed and wanted they are for our area - for exercise, mental health, peace and quiet.

We also thank everyone who joined us for the Living Lands Presentations, watched a video on our YouTube channel, follow us on Facebook and Instagram, read these emails, and come to our annual meeting - any way you join us you're showing you care about the lake and its conservation.
