20th Annual Land & Water Conservation Celebration: August 2, 2019, The Inn at Erlowest

Click here to see a preview of our 2019 Silent Auction!

In the summer of 2000, the Lake George Land Conservancy joined members of the Lake George Club to host a dinner to bring awareness to the unspoiled land across the lake on Pilot Knob Ridge, which, at the time, was under threat of logging and development. As a result of the event, and with the help of many throughout the community, that land was purchased by the LGLC and is now not only forever protected as the Schumann Preserve at Pilot Knob, but is also our most popular preserve and trail in the watershed.

While that summer evening was meant to be a one-time fundraising event, we are now celebrating what has evolved into the 20th Annual Land & Water Conservation Celebration, a record-breaking event that has raised nearly $1.3 Million for land protection in the past two decades. Join us as we look to break our fundraising record, set at last year’s celebration!
