The FUND for Lake George has released a
new short film, “Lake George: A Living Legacy.”
Through narration and captivating footage,
the tribute presents both the promise and peril
now facing Lake George, officials for the FUND
The film was produced by Visual Planet LLC, a
multi-media communications firm in Albany, and
is available to view on The FUND’s home page:
“Lake George: A Living Legacy” features
the three chief concerns that pose a gathering
threat to Lake health– invasive species, rising
salt levels, and declining water quality and clarity–
that, unless halted, will trigger dramatic
declines, FUND officials said.
These threats were revealed in the “State
of the Lake Report: 30 Years of Water Quality
Monitoring on Lake George,” published by The
FUND and RPI.
In direct response, The FUND for Lake George
launched its Legacy Strategy to head off threats
and achieve sustained protection of Lake George
through unprecedented partnerships, program
innovations, and targeted investments.
“The film is meant to inform and inspire
the shared resolve and concerted action now
required to safeguard Lake George and ensure
we can leave a living legacy of which we can all
be proud,” said FUND Executive Director Eric
Siy. “From the aquatic invasive species prevention
program–the first of its kind east of the
Mississippi–to the world-class science of the
Jefferson Project, we are leading by example on
how to protect a seriously threatened natural
asset for future generations.”
In addition to release on The FUND’s website,
screenings of the film will take place at select
events throughout the summer. This includes
The FUND’s annual meeting at the Sagamore
Resort on Saturday, Aug. 15.
