Here's some things ESSLA does:

Educating the community through our newsletters (The Pearl and Mini Pearl) and member meetings.


Advocating to protect the lake.


Partnering with local governments, agencies, sister lakes and Adirondack Park organizations.


Protecting the environs through our AIS Scout and Loon Preservation programs, as well as water testing and other land initiatives.


Initiating the Boat Inspection/Decontamination program and monitoring the stewards at the Horicon launch.


Spearheading and supporting a new initiative making Schroon a certified Loon-Friendly Lake.
