For the past 20 years or so, SLA has been fortunate to have had a dedicated group of people actively taking part in protecting, sustaining, and enhancing our wonderful lake. We depend on our volunteers. And though fortunate, WE NEED YOUR HELP TOO to tackle our ongoing activities and to take on new projects. It's not heavy lifting, can be a lot of fun, and you might even meet a new neighbor!
Here are some ways you can contribute your time and talents. To Volunteer, simply fill out the form below and we'll be back in touch.
Other opportunities to assist include:

Lake Host Boat Inspection
Our Lake Host team, led by Frank Turner and Art Huggins, welcomes visitors to the Lake and inspects their boats, big and small, for any invasive species. Lake Hosts are paid an hourly fee and scheduling is flexible. Join the team and become part of the first line of defense against unwanted intruders. If you are interested in helping out, please complete the form below.
Our Weed Watch team, managed by Val Starbuck, makes a monthly tour of the Lake, generally starting in May and concluding in October. After an initial 30 minute training to identify the bad actors that might have found their way into the water, you’ll be ready to set off with the group. If you are interested in helping out, please complete the form below. For training materials, see: Invasive Aquatic Animal Quick Look and Look Alike Aquatic Plants.
