WORKS IN PROGRESS
"Friends of Long
Meadow" - Fundraising/Events
A non-profit organization,
"Friends of Long Meadow" will accept tax exempt donations to
help fund lake management initiatives. In addition, fundraising
activities will be scheduled to reach out to the community for
additional support. Please check our calendar of events.
We are working to develop
guidelines to help people make informed decisions about how they can
live in a way that protects the ecosystem. Lawn care, septic
maintenance and smart gardening are a start. The LMLMC is a
resource for the community. We are available to answer questions
and will research areas of concern to residents of the watershed.
To date, we have
issued 3 newsletters to watershed residents and have been featured in
the Voices news paper. We will have a presence at existing functions
such as the Bethlehem Fair, Earth Day, and the Bellamy Ferriday House
and Garden events. We contribute to the Northwest Conservation
Districtís "The Voice of Local Conservation" and work with
the Bethlehem Conservation Commission.
LMLMC is creating an educational program to work with local students. The results of one of these programs soon will be visible as you enter the watershed and are welcomed with colorful and informative signs.
