Friends of the Lodge

Watres Lodge - circa 1929

     The Lacawac Sanctuary is a non-profit organization of volunteer members founded in 1966, and dedicated to preserving Lake Lacawac, the Lacawac Forest, facilitating ecological research and preserving the historic Connell Park "Adirondack Great Camp."  Watres Lodge is the centerpiece of the Great Camp.

     The Friends of the Lodge is a group of caring supporters committed to historic preservation and particularly to fully restoring and protecting Watres Lodge.  Funds contributed to this endowment are restricted with only fund income used. That insures there will always be a source of support available to carry out the preservaiton mission.  Members of the group are recognized on a plaque in the lodge and those contributing support at levels over $1,000. have the option to name a bedroom suite in the lodge.
