Name the View and Win a Prize from the Lake George Land Conservancy
The Lake George Land Conservancy, which acquired the Berry Pond Tract on Prospect Mountain to protect it from development, is holding a contest to help it retire its mortgage.
The 1,435-acre Berry Pond Tract includes spectacular views of Lake George, and those views inspired the contest.
“A contest to name the view from Berry Pond is an ideal way to get people thinking about the gifts of nature which surround us daily here in the Lake George region,” said Nancy Williams, the Conservancy’s executive director.
The Conservancy hopes the contest will help it raise the $150,000 it needs to retire the debt.
“As a non-profit land trust, our work depends on the generosity and passion of people who love Lake George and want it to remain clean and beautiful for their children and future generations,” said Williams,
According to Williams, those entering the contest may vote for one of four names—Rattlesnake Cobble Overlook, The Queen of Lake’s Throne, Dome-Island-Here-I-Come, or Mayor Bob’s Lookout—or create a name of their own.
When submitting a name, people are encouraged to make a tax-deductible donation to the Conservancy, although a donation is not required to enter the contest. The contest will run through midnight on Friday, July 11, 2014.
The winning name will be pulled from a drawing to be held at the Lake George Land Conservancy’s annual board meeting on July 17, 2014.
