Lakes Congress

Lakes Congress is our annual education, training, and networking event. It is designed for lake and other natural resource stewards, lake managers, business leaders, and municipal and political leaders to gain knowledge and skills to educate, advocate, and organize to restore and preserve the health of New Hampshire’s 1,000 lakes and ponds.

Communities Working Together for Resilient Lakes

Join us for Lakes Congress 2024, Thursday, June 6 at Church Landing in Meredith, NH

Our lakes are at a tipping point. We’re seeing more and more cyanobacteria blooms each year, and just this past summer, a new invasive species, the spiny water flea, was found in Lake Winnipesaukee and Lake Winnisquam. 

While this news can feel overwhelming, there’s some reassuring news. There is a growing statewide community of people like you who love lakes working together to restore and protect lake health here in New Hampshire. Together, they are making our lakes more resilient to the threats of today and the future. 

Join others in this community at Lakes Congress 2024 to share your stories and challenges. You’ll surely learn and get advice from some of the most incredible lake minds in the state–and you’ll make new friends, too. Most of all,  you’ll return to your lake community ready to inspire action and make a difference!
