Protecting the Land that Protects the Lake since 1988
Double Your Impact with the Beaty Family Challenge
Earlier this month, the LGLC announced a new matching challenge of $325,000 in support of its Clark Hollow Bay project, presented by the Beaty Family. Since then, more than $75,000 has been donated to the project and matched, bringing us even closer to completing the $5 million project this summer.
The Beaty Family Challenge is being gifted in memory of James (Jim) Beaty (pictured) by his two brothers, wife, son and a cousin. The Beatys’ love of Lake George’s pristine beauty began generations ago when Jim’s grandfather, Dr. Albert Corscaden, bought a piece of land in Hague and built a house there in 1914.
The family has supported the LGLC and its efforts to preserve Lake George since its inception in 1988. In 2011 the family underwrote the installation of an entry gate to Peggy’s Point in Hague in memory of their mother, Julia Beaty. The Challenge now offered in memory of Jim Beaty is another testament to their family’s dedication to the Lake and investment in its future.

Living Lands Series Begins This Week with "Rain to Lake"
Spaces are still available for our first Living Lands presentation this Wednesday, June 23rd, "Rain to Lake." John Rhodes, P.E. will lead you through the hydraulic cycle, following the journey of rain water as it finds its way to Lake George. He will focus on the impacts of erosion and sedimentation, and how different land use affects runoff, infiltration, and ultimately, the water quality of the Lake. John Rhodes, P.E. was trained at MIT and has more than 45 years of experience in environmental engineering and science related to soil, air, surface water and groundwater.
Subsequent talks include beavers and their impact on our watershed, frogs and turtles, the stories behind Adirondack place names, geology, Lake George colonial history, trees, and the history of Wiawaka. Complete details and registration link are at lglc.org/living-lands.
The LGLC's annual Living Lands Series of free educational presentations will run Wednesday evenings at 5:30 pm, June 22 through August 31.
