Lake Mansfield Alliance

Our Mission

Since 2004, Lake Mansfield Alliance (LMA) has been working to preserve, protect and enhance Lake Mansfield as a vital natural habitat and community resource. We are a grassroots stewardship group, investing many hours of in-kind volunteer labor to accomplish our mission.

Our projects include:

  • Public outreach & education
  • Park area improvements
  • Development, care & maintenance of the forest trail systems
  • Promoting clean and healthy water
  • Control of invasive species

LMA is a project of Great Barrington Land Conservancy (GBLC), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. GBLC is a vehicle for preserving and enhancing our community's natural resources and distinctive character. 

A Healthy Habitat

The rich beauty of the Lake Mansfield Conservation Area is dependent on the health of the lake and forest. Clean water and abundant native plants and animals are absolutely essential to the health of these vital habitats. LMA works to foster appreciation and stewardship of these resources.
