President's Corner

Welcome to beautiful

Kezar Lake! 

 

For many this is home, while for others, a home away from home or an exciting new experience. Whatever your circumstance, this lake is a jewel of a resource.

Kezar enjoys enviable water quality for active and passive use.  Whether swimming, boating, fishing, hiking or bicycling – or spotting our annual loon families and majestic bald eagles – Kezar Lake has much to offer.  

Things weren’t always this wonderful. Beginning more than fifty years ago, our lake suffered periodic algae blooms. With the aid of state agencies, legal counsel, local residents and others, it has experienced a rebirth. But Kezar Lake requires care and diligence to ensure that its sensitive environmental history is not repeated. Like other lakes, Kezar’s water quality is readily threatened by modern pollutants, such as road salt and sand, fertilizers and waste water.  

KLPA was founded by lake residents and others with a mission to protect and enhance Kezar Lake by testing water quality, educating the public, enhancing recreational use, encouraging volunteerism, maintaining public access to this wonderful asset, and hiring lake hosts to monitor invasive species.

You can enjoy and help protect our lake by becoming a member of KLPA, making a donation or volunteering.  If you are not already a member, please join us! Each new member makes a big difference.

Thank you for visiting our webpage, and I look forward to seeing you around exciting Kezar!

Digging Into Native History

in New Hampshire

Robert Goodby, Ph.D.

 

Abenaki history has been reduced to near-invisibility as a result of conquest, a conquering culture that placed little value on the Indian experience, and a strategy of self-preservation that required many Abenaki to go "underground," concealing their true identities for generations to avoid discrimination and persecution. Robert Goodby reveals archaeological evidence that shows their deep presence here, inches below the earth's surface.

Sunday, October 11, 2020, 3 p.m. First Free Will Baptist Church, North Sutton, NH. Free and open to the public.

Cosponsored by Kezar Lake Protective Association and Cougar Sound Spirits Healing Center. A New Hampshire Humanities program.
