What is the Crescent lake Association?
As hundreds flock to Crescent Lake each year to enjoy its pristine waters, few understand they have the members of the CLA and their years of protection to thank for those clean and clear waters. The Crescent Lake Association (CLA) is the leading citizen group responsible for conserving Crescent Lake. Over the years, our balanced approach to lake management has ensured the Lake’s exceptional water quality, as well as the environmental and economic viability of the entire watershed. Our action-based programs are designed to conserve one of the most pristine and beautiful natural resources in Oneida County.
The Crescent Lake Association is a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization dedicated to protecting, conserving and improving the beauty and quality of Crescent Lake. With the support of a large membership, including families, businesses, seasonal and full time residents, and visitors, today’s CLA is very active in four main program areas:
- Education of residents and visitors of all ages;
- Outreach into communities about lake-friendly living; and
- Lake saving projects to remedy existing water quality problems and
- The prevention of Aquitic Invasive Species (AIS). Many thanks to all who volunteer to help preserve this natural resource.
