State Releases Harmful Algae Bloom Action Plan for Lake George

June 20th, 2018 · Comments Off

The state recently prepared an action plan for Lake George in regard to Harmful Algae Blooms (HAB’s).

Lake George was recently one of twelve New York lakes that was included in a study of harmful algae blooms. The 12 selected lakes represent a wide range of conditions, the goal was to identify factors that lead to Harmful Alage Blooms (HAB’s) in specific water bodies, and apply the information learned to other lakes facing similar threats. Each lake studied had an action plan prepared for that lake.

The good news from the report on Lake George:

“There have been no reported HABs in Lake George to date. Analyses conducted in this Action Plan provide insight into the processes that may potentially influence the formation of HABs in Lake George, and their possible spatial extents, durations, and intensities. Implementation of the mitigation actions recommended in this HABs Action Plan are expected to prevent the likelihood of blooms in Lake George.”


“Lake George is oligotrophic, rarely exhibits shoreline algal blooms, and there is no record of any HABs being observed or reported on the lake. Screening samples analyzed for algae, cyanobacteria, and algal toxin levels, including phycocyanin, and microcystin, by the State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry (SUNY ESF) since 2012 found low overall algae levels and low cyanobacteria levels at each of the sampling sites (NYSDEC 2015). Cyanobacteria have been measured in benthic samples associated with Cladophora and other filamentous algae, but they have not comprised the major taxa in the phytoplankton community in these samples.”

However there is always room for more testing and vigilance:

“In summary, Lake George tends to have very low chlorophyll-a concentrations. However, there are some locations that tend to have consistently higher (though still low) chlorophyll-a concentrations relative to the rest of the lake (Figure 16). These locations include: Sandy Bay, Cotton Island, Basin Bay, Huletts Landing, Heart Bay, Weeds Bay, Asas Island, Lenni-Lenape Island, Arcady Country Cub, and the north end of the Lake around Prison Island. In these shallow areas the remote sensing might be picking other interferences as opposed to chlorophyll-a concentrations. Additional analysis may be of interest to investigate these locations further.”

LGLC Protects Land in Huletts Landing

May 27th, 2018 · Comments Off

The Lake George Land Conservancy has purchased a parcel along Bluff Head Road which they intend to conserve.

The Lake George Land Conservancy (LGLC) has protected 37 acres in Huletts Landing, Washington County by purchasing a 33.3-acre upland piece and a conservation easement on the adjoining lower 3.7-acres lakefront property. As a result, this conservation project is providing permanent water quality protection by preventing the development of uplands directly above the lake, viewshed protection, and the addition of a small, family-friendly recreational opportunity.

Located on the eastern shore of Lake George, Bluff Head Road forms the approximate boundary between the two parcels that were sold by the Wilkening family. The lower property includes an old home (“the White House”), nearly 1/4-mile of stream corridor, and over 600 feet of Lake George shorefront. The upland property has an existing path leading to a viewpoint overlooking the narrows and Silver Bay on the western shore. The uplands also share a 1/2-mile boundary with Spruce Mountain, owned by New York State.

Current zoning would have allowed the construction of up to three homes on the larger parcel, and the smaller parcel could have been subdivided to allow for one additional home. However, the Wilkening family welcomed the possibility of protecting the land that has meant so much to them.

According to an oral history documented in 2010 by Friends of Historic Huletts Landing, the Wilkening family owned the property since the late 1800’s when Helena “Bunny” Wilkening’s grandfather, Smith Ely Jelliffe, bought 150 acres of land in the area. That land was then divided between his children; Ms. Wilkening’s mother was given the land that Ms. Wilkening enjoyed coming to for more than 80 years.

The conservation project was made possible thanks to the generous support and cooperation of Paul and Kaye Lawler, and Paul’s employer, the W. K. Kellogg Foundation, which matched their gift.

The Lawlers made a generous donation to the LGLC with the desire that it be used on future land conservation projects, to protect the land they love. As it turned out, this gift was just what the LGLC needed to move forward on the Wilkening project.

“I am thrilled to see my gift and the matching funds from the Kellogg Foundation being used on these great projects in Huelletts Landing,” Mr. Lawler said. “It’s a special place to me, and it will do so much good for the lake.”

“We are so grateful for the Wilkening family for working with us on this exciting project,” said LGLC Executive Director Jamie Brown, “and to the Lawlers and Kellogg Foundation for making it fiscally possible. It’s been more than 20 years since the LGLC has completed a conservation project in the Town of Dresden, and we’re pleased to once again be active in this tightknit community.”

“This is just the start of things to come in Huletts Landing,” Brown continued. “Foster Brook and other smaller tributaries flow through the area, which is mostly undeveloped. By protecting the surrounding land now we will safeguard the land’s natural ability to filter and manage stormwater for the health of Lake George. Additionally, we are looking into a number of other projects that will help to protect critical conservation values, including viewshed, in this part of the watershed.

The LGLC intends to make modest improvements to the uplands property to allow for minimal passive recreational use. A small parking area will be identified so as to not interfere with traffic on Bluff Head Road, and a short trail will lead to one or two picnic tables installed at the lookout area.

Pictures from the Master’s Golf Championship

April 21st, 2018 · Comments Off

“Amen Corner” at Augusta National Golf Club with its famous bridge.

So we all know the most picturesque golf course in the world is the Huletts golf course but there’s another course in Augusta GA, where every year they have a little tournament called the Masters.

So in order to keep your attention I pass along some pictures from the 2018 Master’s practice round (from the Wednesday immediately before the tournament) for all the avid golfers and fans out there. These were given to me by a friend who recently returned from the Master’s and who wanted me to pass them along.

The iconic 18th hole.

Jordan Spieth practicing his putting.

Tiger Woods walking the fairway.

People having their picture taken with the clubhouse and the Master’s logo in flowers in the background.

While at Augusta National, spectators and fans are called “patrons.” Additionally, there is an entire par-3 course alongside of the 18 holes that the Master’s tournament is played on.
