President's Corner

Welcome to Kezar Lake... 


.....And to Kezar Lake Protective Association's website, which will inform you about most anything you care to know, from our lake’s resilient history to exciting ongoing events.

As we enter our 51st year, I want to acknowledge our debt to the original KLPA members who came together in 1971 to heal and preserve the lake. Our task is to continue with their legacy to manage current issues and prepare for the new challenges brought on by climate change and increased use of our lake. The Lake Host program is at the core of that mission, working in concert with NH LAKES to educate ourselves and put in place practices to protect the lake.


The Kezar Lake Watershed is the yearlong project of Prof. Harvey Pine’s third year environmental studies class at Colby-Sawyer College. There will be an in-depth report at the end of the year. Throughout the year there will be updates on our webpage and perhaps a blog or Facebook page as they bring us into the 21st century of social media. Please stop and say hi if you see them around the lake in their white Colby-Sawyer van.

KLPA is more relevant than ever as we face ongoing assaults on the environment. Raising money for potential remediation is a key part of our stewardship, so we can quickly and decisively address problems as they arise.

Our goal is to reach out to all who enjoy our lake, not just those who live on it. We provide amenities to make it more enjoyable — swimming lessons, educational signage and talks, and a port-a-potty at Horse Beach. People often ask our Lake Hosts what they can do to help, and they are prepared with the answer: donations of any size, either monetary or time.

I look forward to hearing from you.
