We have many programs that provide direct benefits to the Lake and surrounding community.
- Lake Hosts – Provide courtesy inspections and outreach to prevent invasive plant species (e.g., milfoil) from entering the lake. Our volunteers have repeatedly “saved” the lake from introduction of these species.
- Weed Watchers – Monitor native and non-native plant species to track near-shore lake health.
- Lake Monitors – Monitor eight sample sites on the lake in partnership with the University of New Hampshire.
- Tributary Monitors – Monitor 35 stream locations in 8 subwatersheds of the lake in partnership with the University of New Hampshire.
Education is part of our mission because with an informed watershed community we can accomplish so much more.
- Scientific on-site training of local students, campers and the general public.
- Classroom and field instruction by NLRA staff.
- Workshops and events concerning the many resources Newfound has to offer.
We continue to work with town boards, nonprofits and other organizations to develop strategic partnerships. We try to be the voice of the watershed. The community should lead us in the direction they feel best benefits our watershed.
- Newfound Land Conservation Partnership
- Lake-level management presentations
- Timber harvesting and gravel mining workshops and seminars
