Mission

LAON is a non-profit scientific and educational organization dating back to 1971. We are dedicated to collecting data and informing the public about issues affecting the lakes of Norway. We’re about clean waters.

Members are concerned citizens, like you, who value the quality of life on and around the lakes of Norway and want to encourage responsible recreational activities as well as the balance of aquatic life so that we can all enjoy our leisure time and the wonder of our natural resources.

Members are your neighbors who enjoy swimming, boating, fishing and water sports during the summer on the lakes as well as using them for snowmobiling, ice fishing, skating and cross country skiing all winter. Members are caring local businesses who value a balanced environment and economic growth.

Invest in the future. Consider membership in LAON to support Norway’s four beautiful bodies of water: Sand Pond, Hobbs Pond (Little Penn), North Pond and Lake Pennesseewassee (Norway Lake).

Our purpose is to keep you informed about what is happening with our lakes and in our area. More information about environmental issues and permitting may be found on the Maine DEP and Maine Forest Service links.
