For the sake of the Lake

  About us   

About Gardom Lake Stewardship Society   

We are a group of volunteers who have been caring for and about Gardom Lake since 1992.  We provide educational materials for residents and visitors about how they can help to maintain and improve the health of Gardom Lake. Originally known as the Friends of Gardom Lake, our group was incorporated as the Gardom Lake Stewardship Society (GLSS) in 2015.
