How We Take Action

The LGLC protects the water quality of Lake George through active land management, to sustain the existing diversity of species and natural processes that shape a landscape, or to restore them where they have been removed.


For the Lake George Land Conservancy, stewardship is as dynamic as the species and landscapes we attempt to manage. It is not as simple as “managing” property, but as complex as understanding the web of life and what drives it.

The LGLC is actively working to monitor and manage terrestrial invasive plants and insects that are established and negatively impacting our forests and shorelines, or are not here yet but expected to infest the Lake George watershed in the near future.

Learn more

The LGLC manages nearly 40 miles of trails for passive use throughout the watershed. Sustainable trails are designed to withstand intensive use, to minimize erosion and impact on the land, while also providing a safe and enjoyable experience for hikers.
