About the Lake George Land Conservancy
The Lake George Land Conservancy (LGLC) is a not-for-profit land trust dedicated to working with willing landowners and other partners to protect the world-renowned water quality of Lake George and to permanently preserve the natural, scenic, historical and recreational resources of the Lake George region.
Founded in 1988, LGLC uses progressive conservation strategies to work with landowners, government officials, conservation partners, volunteers, and supporters aimed at securing the protection of special natural places for future generations to enjoy. LGLC currently owns and/or manages 18 parks and preserves that are open to the public year-round or by special request/restricted access with over 30 miles of trails for hiking, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, and at some preserves, hunting and snowmobiling.
LGLC relies on private donations to continue its land conservation and education programs. To date, thousands of concerned individuals, families, foundations and organizations have helped LGLC and its partners to permanently protect 6.5 miles of lake shoreline and 10,000 acres of land around Lake George.
