Land and Energy Conservation

Land Conservation has been a fundamental driver for environmental protection for many years at Lake Mohawk. We invest and support programs related to the protection, preservation, management, or restoration of natural resources, including lake water quality, storm water drainage, septic system management, potable water supply, and programs related to forested areas, such as the protection of current landscapes including along stream banks and storm water flow channels, soils, and fish / wildlife communities. Energy demands and costs to Lake Associations are continuing to escalate. The Foundation will invest in projects and limited monitoring studies that advance and increase energy conservation, e.g., heating and air-conditioning systems linked to ground, ground water, or lake waters to provide higher efficiencies that conventional systems.
