MA COLAP works to preserve, protect, maintain and enhance the environmental, aesthetic, recreational and economic values of Massachusetts' lakes & ponds.

A shared vision for our lakes & ponds

Through our work at MA COLAP, we have been fortunate to connect with many great people and organizations who share our dedication and passion for protecting and preserving our Commonwealth's beautiful lakes and ponds. From our beginning, one of our primary roles has been to serve as a unifying force for these groups and their efforts. Within this role, we have created a stronger, more dynamic lake community for which we proudly serve as its’ representative. We have evolved to be an informational resource for individuals, students, lake and pond associations and conservation commissions. We are constantly working to provide up to date and pertinent information for our members. In the near future we hope to offer more trainings and workshops to further advance our mission.

Although we've celebrated many achievements over the years, our lakes and ponds continue to face many serious threats today. More than ever, it is vital that we continue to grow and strengthen our community. Please consider getting involved in whatever form is right for you by visiting our membership page or by emailing membership@macolap.org. If you're part of a group working to protect a lake or pond in Massachusetts, we encourage you to become a member of MA COLAP.
