Established in 1885, the LGA is the oldest lake association in the United States. Its mission includes protecting the crystal clear water quality of Lake George, New York - an important source of clean drinking water.

A full-time staff, alongside countless LGA members and community partners, is working hard today to protect our water quality for tomorrow.  Visitors to Lake George resorts, watershed residents, as well as owners of lakefront homes, are all encouraged to join the LGA as members and to learn more about how to keep our water clean through lake-friendly living and stormwater management.

In addition, the LGA welcomes everyone aboard its Floating Classroom, which operates May – October, where you can learn:

-          What are invasive species?

-          What is clean water?  What is water quality? 

-          Why are wetland plants and wetland animals so important?

-          What makes Lake George different and special?

-          And much more!

Programs on the Floating Classroom for the general public take place on Wednesdays in July and August.  Lake George tour groups, schools and resorts can schedule their own times.  Call us or visit our website for more information.
