For 32 years, the Lake George Land Conservancy has protected the land that protects the lake.

An accredited, not-for-profit land trust, the Lake George Land Conservancy (LGLC) is 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 of the Adirondack Park.

We use proven, nationally-recognized methods to protect the land that protects the lake, forever.  Thanks to experienced and passionate staff, strong leadership from a dedicated Board, guidance from our national network, our local partners, and a diverse group of financial supporters, the LGLC is able to do its job by focusing on one of the most cost-effective and efficient methods of protecting the lake: land conservation.
