The L.A.K.E. Association

In 1994, a group of concerned citizens got together to look for ways to improve the quality and usability of Snyder's Lake. At that time, milfoil, an invasive underwater plant, was a growing rampant in the lake, which interfered with recreational activities, such as swimming, fishing and boating. Controlling the milfoil issue was essential to the future viability of the lake. Consequently, the L.A.K.E. Association was formed to identify and implement safe and effective solutions to the milfoil problem.

Today, the L.A.K.E. Association is in a rebuilding phase. Our goal now is to grow the human and financial resources that we need to address the new issues facing our community. Membership is available to all families who are owners of, or who have a leasehold interest in, residential property that is within the drainage basin of Snyder's Lake, as defined by the "Snyder's Lake Watershed Overlay District". Please demonstrate your support and join the L.A.K.E. Association today.

The Social Side 

From community-wide garage sales and BBQs to fundraisers and volunteer events, the L.A.K.E. Association sponsors a wide variety of social activities here on Snyder’s Lake. Pictured here are images from the 2nd Snyder’s Lake History Night.


Environmental Awareness

The L.A.K.E. Association is also an advocate of environmental awareness. 

In August, dozens of volunteers from the Snyder’s Lake community joined forces with the L.A.K.E. Association, Albany Aquanauts and Town of North Greenbush officials to participate in the 2nd Annual Lake Bottom Clean-up. Divers and clean-up crews spent hours lifting and hauling heavy debris from the below the water’s surface. The event was a huge success and hopefully will inspire more people to take responsibility and respect the natural resource we have. Thanks Bob Shenise of Shenise Productions LLC for putting together this incredible footage of our beautiful lake (including amazing aerial and underwater footage) and the community’s efforts to preserve it.

In June, we invited Dr. Rick Relyea, Biological Sciences Professor at RPI and Executive Director of the Darrin Freshwater Institute, to speak to the community about the Jefferson Project and Lake Management Efforts in Lake George. The Jefferson Project is a combined effort of RPI, IBM and the Fund for Lake George to advocate for ecosystem understanding and protection.
