The Lake 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 Lake 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 Lake Association today.


The Social Side 

From community dinners to community-wide garage sales, the Lake Association sponsors a wide variety of social activities and volunteer events. If you thought the lake was beautiful from the ground, then wait until you see it from the air.

Environmental Awareness

The Lake Association is also an advocate of environmental awareness. 

In August, dozens of volunteers from the Snyder’s Lake community joined forces with the Lake 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.
