Thank you for your generosity


Our year end fundraising appeal is in the mail.  We are so grateful for your generousity, which allows us to continue our research, stewardship actions, shoreline protection, and community outreach. 

Fall Stewardship Reminders


Leave the leaves!

  • Leaves from lawns can be mulched in place, used in gardens, or composted
  • No need to rake in wooded areas, as leaves slow runoff and fertilize the trees
  • Don’t rake your leaves into the lake. Tell your lawn service this too!

If you must fertilize, use only phosphorus-free fertilizer. 

  • Phosphorus-free fertilizer has a zero as the middle number, as in 27-0-5
  • Don’t apply fertilizer when rain is expected or after the ground is frozen

Use native plants in borders along lakes and streams.

  • Plants and shrubs can slow the flow of polluted lawn runoff into water
  • Native plants can help a healthy ecosystem function better

Inspect your septic tank and pump it out regularly.

  • Septic systems are the leading cause of phosphorus pollution for most lakes.
  • Town Law requires pumping at least once every 5 years. Enforcement starts in May 2016

Your activities can make a difference around the Three Lakes!


 Introducing the Three Lakes Council Minimize

The Three Lakes Council was organized in 1970 to lead and coordinate the environmental efforts for the Lake Waccabuc - Oscaleta - Rippowam watershed in the Town of Lewisboro, New York.


Our mission is to preserve and protect the entire 2,200 acre watershed through education, conservation and prevention.  We are the only non-profit association in the watershed with this mission, and we rely on the financial generosity and volunteer efforts of many lake area residents to accomplish our goals.
