The Belgrade Lakes Association is, by our best estimates, the oldest Lake's Association in the State of Maine, going back to 1909!  Water Quality programs continue to form the heart of the Belgrade Lakes Association's mission.  Our Mission is "To protect and improve the watershed of Great and Long Pond through preservation, education and action".  A mission that has most recently brought you Docks to Doorways and our new Village docks, the Maine Lakes Resource Center, the Stop Milfoil Campaign and LakeSmart just to mention a few.  Your membership and continued support is so important and helps us to further preserve and protect the watershed of Great Pond and Long Pond.  Please join us in protecting our heritage.

The MLRC hosted a Water Quality Community Meeting on Wednesday, March 16th, 2016

Colby College Miselis Professor of Chemistry and MLRC board member, Whitney King,  summarized the results of last summer’s intensive water quality research efforts in the Belgrade Lakes.  

Meeting attendees had the opportunity to ask questions related to the data collection/analysis and learn about the next phase of this collaborative project.  Click here to review the data collected this summer.

Our Friends at Biodiversity Research Institute in Gorham, Maine have initiated the largest conservation study for the Common Loon, a key bioindicator of aquatic integrity for lakes and near shore marine ecosystems across North America.  Their initiative provides an opportunity to identify current major threats and create solutions that strengthen current populations and restore loons to their former breeding range.
