The new year brings new opportunities for Lake Lanier residents and stakeholders to participate in lake issues.

The Lake Lanier Association has released its 2021 volunteer involvement programs and its 2021 calendar of events.

“We are planning to be even more active this year as we advocate for the lake,” said Jennifer Flowers, executive director. “From offering informative webinars of public interest to offering a paddle safety course, our goal is to maximize ways our membership can be involved.”
