Lake Placid Land Conservancy

Lake Placid Land Conservancy (LPLC) s a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit land trust located in the heart of the Adirondack mountains in Lake Placid, New York with a mission to protect Lake Placid and sustain its nearby communities by conserving land and water resources.

LPLC was created with the merger of Placid Lake Foundation (PLF) and North Elba Land Conservancy (NELC) in December, 2013. The merger allows the new organization to expand its focus beyond that of PLF and NELC, and ensures that one local land trust will grow and thrive in Lake Placid. It enables a stronger, unified, more visible presence with the ability to meet its mission to protect Lake Placid and sustain its nearby communities by conserving land and water resources.

LPLC is able to hold conservation easements and to own parcels of land that support its mission, and works with private landowners and local government agencies to accomplish it goals. The LPLC's goals are to:

  • preserve community character by protecting scenic vistas, working agricultural lands, and open spaces
  • protect water quality by conserving wetlands and increasing awareness of the importance of watershed protection
  • enhance recreational opportunities by preserving existing and historic recreational trails, which are accessible to the public.
