LGLC Receives $27,600 for Organizational Support

Bolton Landing, NY – The Lake George Land Conservancy (LGLC) has been awarded a grant of $27,600 from this year’s New York State Conservation Partnership Program (NYSCPP) to help further its mission to protect the land that protects Lake George.

Grant funds will be used to strengthen the LGLC’s donor and land database systems, and provide additional technology, field equipment, and services to keep the organization working efficiently and effectively into the future.

The need for robust management tools comes at a time when the LGLC is managing a record number of land conservation projects throughout the Lake George watershed, as well as continuing to provide safe recreational resources and quality educational and outreach programming to residents, landowners, and visitors, year-round.

The NYSCPP grants, which were announced by Governor Hochul on May 7, are administered by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) and the Land Trust Alliance, and are supported by the State’s Environmental Protection Fund (EPF). Funding supports projects that protect water quality, prevent farmland conversion, boost public access for outdoor recreation, and conserve open space.
