Our mission is to preserve the health and beauty of the four lakes of Norway, Maine: Sand Pond, Hobbs Pond (Little Penn,) North Pond and Lake Pennesseewassee (Norway Lake). Our work involves: monitoring water quality; monitoring for invasive species; voluntary boat inspections to prevent invasive plants from entering our waters; and outreach to engage our community in protecting our lakes. We also strive to keep you informed about what is happening with our lakes and in our area.
We 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.
We are caring local businesses who value a balanced environment and economic growth. We are also grateful to the Town of Norway for it ongoing support and partnering with our efforts. Our business sponsors can be seen on our Thanks to Our Sponsors page. Learn how to be a Business Sponsor.
