Now that we have finally seen the last of the snow showers here in Schroon (hopefully!), we continue to work hard to be ready for visitors to the lake. With the NY Forward Phase I reopening to begin on Friday, May 15, we will be ready for boaters. This means that the boat wash stations are currently being set up for the season!...
We are finally starting to have a hint of the summer weather we are all so looking forward to, and with that comes the desire to get out on the water. This is also a time to be thinking about aquatic invasive species. Boats are reappearing on our local waterways, and some are moving from lake to lake and pond to pond. Despite our ...
Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, the Schroon Lake Association Board has voted to postponed the 51st Craft Fair from July 18, 2020 to Saturday, July 17, 2021. The Board regrets having to make this decision but after much consideration of available information and in the interest of public safety, the Board felt that this was the best deci...

It has been said that “hindsight is 2020” and, as we look forward to the start of a new decade, I would encourage you to think back on the memories made on the lake we love. We all love the purity of our waters, the beauty of our mountains, beaches and streams, the sound of loons calling an...
Dear SLA Members and Friends:
We find ourselves at that time of the year for family and friends and at least quiet joy. Many of the world’s religions have scheduled major Holidays at this time of year as we enjoy and/or suffer through these next two weeks. Our beautiful watershed nestled in snowy mountains creates incredible surround...
Lake associations keep watch for aquatic invaders and water degradation.

Thanksgiving allows us to look forward to the future based on the past. This gives us an opportunity to thank those people who have played an important part in our lives. It is a uniquely North American holiday, started when persons, barely hanging on by their fingernails, came together to realize how truly lucky they were.

Yesterday we put the Boat Decon Station in Severance to bed for the winter. With that, SLA’s most visible outdoor activities end until spring.
