LGLC News for January 2024

LGLC Receives Donation of Land in South Basin

The LGLC has been given a donation of 4.4 acres of undeveloped land in the Town of Lake George by Karen Azer and her late mother Helene Horn. The property borders the LGLC’s 12-acre East Brook Preserve and includes more than three acres of wetlands and 600 feet of forested steam corridor that help to naturally protect water quality.

“I am glad the parcel will remain forever wild,” said Karen Azer, “not only benefiting water quality but also protecting habitat for wildlife.”

In total, the newly expanded East Brook Preserve includes more than 1,100 feet of East Brook, one of the top ten tributaries of Lake George, and is heavily forested with some impressive hemlock, white pine, ash and sugar maples scattered throughout.
