Become a Lake Protector

Lake George has never needed you more — at your home, your business or on the Lake.
Become a Lake Protector now and help us tackle unprecedented and intensifying threats.

Get Started

Through your direct participation and the LGA’s world-class science, advocacy, and education programs, we’ll succeed in making Lake George a global model for freshwater protection.

Harmful Algal Blooms and the Hemlock Woolly Adelgid invasive species threaten to permanently degrade Lake George.

We simply cannot allow these threats to take away all we love about Lake George, and all the economic benefits the Lake brings to our region. It’s time for all of us to act.

Become a Lake Protector today

It will be the most important step you can take to protect our Lake.

The Future of Lake Protection is in Our Hands.

The Science of Lake Protection Is Working

The protective actions we are asking you to take on behalf of Lake George are based on world-leading freshwater science and research conducted by the Lake George Waterkeeper and the Jefferson Project, our uniquely powerful partnership with IBM and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.
