LGLC has been working to protect the land within the Lake George watershed - from summit to shoreline - to preserve the world renowned water quality of this amazing lake. As a non-profit land trust our work depends on the generosity and passion of people who love Lake George and want it to remain as clean and beautiful as it is today for their children and future generations.
Protecting the land that protects the lake since 1988. The Lake George Land Conservancy is an accredited 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.

The beaver has changed the American landscape more than any creature other than Man. Its industrious nature and hardy disposition allow it to create suitable habitat wherever it goes. Valuable beaver fur fueled development, westward expansion, and war in the infancy of our country. Join NYS DEC Wildlife Technician Jessica Haggerty as she leads an evening guided hike through Amy’s Park and learn about the natural and political ways this humble rodent has shaped the landscape, and our country.
This walk also coincides with National Trails Day! National Trails Day is the only nationally coordinated event designed to unite all muscle-powered trail activities with the goal of connecting more people to trails. Each year, on the first Saturday of June, American Hiking Society and the trails community invite Americans of all ages and abilities to find their own adventure and discover their unique story at one of the thousands of events hosted throughout the country.
All ages and skills levels are welcome. This evening hike will take place from 6pm-7:30pm.

The forest of the Lake George Land Conservancy’s Cook Mt. Preserve has become overtaken by invasive shrubby honeysuckle. Help us cut and pull these aggressive invaders so that native plants can move back in and restore the forest to a healthier place for wildlife. There is a LOT of honeysuckle, so many hands are needed!
No RSVP required – stop by the preserve any day, any time between 10 am and 1 pm and stay as little or as long as you can. Encourage your friends to lend a hand too! Any amount of time helps!
Bring work gloves, branch clippers and a great attitude! Sturdy shoes, long sleeves and pants, and insect repellent are suggested to protect against scratches and ticks.
