LakeSmart on Squam

LakeSmart is a free, non-regulatory, and voluntary education and recognition program. The goal is to encourage property owners to maintain their homes and property in ways that protect lake water quality, wildlife habitat, and property values.


Why should you become LakeSmart?

What happens on your property affects the lake—whether you live along it or miles from it. LakeSmart properties create clean, clear, and healthy water, recreational opportunities, higher property values, and better habitat for wildlife. You can inspire others to make lake-friendly living a way of life in Squam, Little Squam and White Oak Pond.
