Help Us To Keep Schroon Lake Beautiful!
As a non-profit organization, SLA is dependent on volunteers to complete projects. Some of these volunteers are required to be SLA members, others are not. However, to stay informed on every level as these opportunities arise, and to receive our newsletters, we encourage you to become a Member now and be a part of our team!
Volunteers are needed in many areas. A few specific requests are listed on this page.

Launch Ramp Project
Our members Bill McGhie (also President of the ESSLA) and Jane Smith (also of the ESSLA), together with our members John Huston and Howard Warren head up the Launch Ramp Committee which will train and organize volunteers to staff the two launch ramps on scheduled days in 2008. For more information on the project, see our Launch Ramp Project page.
We need volunteers to help with this project! If interested, please contact Bill at email@example.com.
Purple Loosestrife Harvest
Purple Loosestrife, an invasive plant that has just started appearing around the shores of Schroon Lake, will be harvested in June before the seeds have developed in order to curb the spread of this plant. Our Lake Manager, Steve LaMere of Adirondack Ecologists, will be training the volunteers. Join us for a day by the lake!
Our Lake Manager, Steve LaMere, has indicated that he is willing to train members of the Schroon Lake Association who wish to help when he and his divers are doing Eurasian Watermilfoil harvesting this summer. The volunteers would patrol the perimeter of the dive area to keep other boats out of the harvest area. You would need to provide your own boat or canoe and you must be a member of the Association!
Light the LaMP!! Our Lake Management Master Plan
We will need volunteers to collate and list the comments received on the Lake Management Plan questionnaires we sent out this summer. Please contact us if you are interested in helping with this project.
