Mountain Lake Community Association

Annual Genera Membership Meeting

Thank you for all who attended our annual general membership meeting and to all the volunteers who made our past year a success by donating time, services, and supplies to improve the aesthetics and the quality of the environment here in the watershed! Survey Update: We are still accepting lake surveys through the end of the 2015 year. Your opinion and comments are vital to establishing a focused and thorough lake management plan.

Water monitoring @ the Lake: Become a volunteer! Join us for the training or email Shannon to sign up to volunteer to monitor the lake's water. If we can get 10 folks to volunteer, we can easily collect monthly readings. The data collected will be logged and used to identify potential issues/needs of the lake to ensure its health! Healthy waters= Healthy people! Sept. 30th @ 5:30 pm at the boat launch. 30 minute outdoors workshop.

Mountain Lake Community Association & Watershed Advisory Group Annual Meeting

Join us on Friday July 31st at the Mountain Lake Firehouse at 7pm for our annual general membership meeting. We will be reviewing the community lake survey responses, discussing progress on the management plan, and also identify workshops/classes of interest for future.

There will also be a special presentation on Boating Safety provided by the US Coast Guard Auxiliary, aka America's Volunteer Guardians. In 1939, Congress created the Coast Guard Auxiliary to serve as a volunteer, civilian partner to the US Coast Guard; living and working in the communities they serve.

Volunteers from the Lake Hopatcong Flotilla will provide a free presentation about making boating safer – accidents and prevention, paddle craft/board safety, cold water immersion/hypothermia, and using the right life jacket. All ages are encouraged to join us!

Birding 101 Workshop


A huge THANK YOU to John Parke of the NJ Audubon Society for an amazing class on beginner birding! Thank you also to all those in attendance.

Some helpful tips from the workshop:

  • Equipment: Good pair of binoculars & a field guide with range maps and descriptions, not just pictures
  • Shapes: Get familiar with silhouettes & shapes-wings, beaks & tails
  • Size it up - compare size of bird to something you know
  • Some things don't change – Shape of beaks and feet dictate food and habitat
  • Look for certain colors & patterns – color around the eyes/on the wings, patterns in the wing/on the tail, behavior patterns and habitat.

Pick up a free birding trail maps at the Liberty municipal building. Happy Birding!
