Since 1971 the Newfound Lake Region Association has led the region in watershed-scale planning and action to preserve Newfound Lake’s clean water and the beautiful forests that play a key role in preserving water quality. As a small organization with a large mission, your gift to the Annual Fund helps assure our continued success.
The NLRA has a thoughtful and proven three-fold strategy to protect Newfound’s clean water and healthy forests:
- Encourage and Enable Individual Action. Prevent stormwater pollution. Reduce impervious surface, help stormwater soak in to the ground, and protect shoreland vegetation to preserve property values and keep our water clean.
- Strengthen Town Land-use Policy. More houses are inevitable. NLRA advocates for low-impact development to preserve the Newfound quality of life. We promote policies and practices that balance growth and conservation. Town planning is our best option for “local control”.
- Strategic Land Conservation. Our forested hillsides provide memorable vistas and clean water. Land conservation protects views, water, and traditional uses forever.
Each of our strategies has one or more hands-on, community-focused programs to make them happen. By donating to the Annual Fund, you directly support this important work, and more.
Please contact the NLRA if you have any questions about how you can make a positive difference stewarding the land and Lake that we love!
