About
ESSLA

ESSLA (East Shore Schroon Lake Association) is a volunteer organization that loves Schroon Lake and the Adirondacks! Yearly, thousands of hours are spent preserving, protecting and improving the waters and lands of the Schroon Lake watershed to ensure it remains the “Pearl of the Adirondacks” for generations to come.

Volunteer and
Make a Difference

Volunteer to become an ESSLA ambassador and join us in our efforts to preserve, protect and improve the Schroon Lake watershed. This is a great opportunity to meet new people while working toward a common goal.  Scout for invasives, provide us with environmental or technological guidance, join the Loon conservation efforts, organize our raffles or help at one of our events. The more volunteers we have, the more we can do. Even a small amount of your time makes a big difference to the lake and lands we love!

Invasive Species Harshly Impact Our Watershed Everyday... 

We need your help! Invasive species, often referred to as “unwanted hitchhikers,” threaten our lake, home properties and the surrounding watershed. Invasive species are non-native plants, animals or insects that cause harm to the environment and/or people’s health. One of the biggest threats to our watershed is the Hemlock Woolly Adelgid. If not controlled, most our region’s hemlocks will be destroyed within 10 years!
