Welcome to the Lake Pleasant-Sacandaga Association

The organization was founded in 1953. LPSA utilizes a broad range of activities and initiatives to raise awareness of the threats of invasive species in our waters and woodlands, including both aquatic and terrestrial invasives. If invasive species are discovered in our area, the organization volunteers work with property owners and government agencies to fight the spread of invasive species which pose a threat to the ecological health and beauty of our area.


Lakes in the Town of Lake Pleasant include Lake Pleasant, Sacandaga Lake, Oxbow Lake, Whitaker Lake, and others, including a part of Indian Lake.


LPSA implements and supports many projects which protect the environment and benefit the community.
