Working to Protect the Quality of our Lake and Ponds
KEZAR LAKE WATERSHED
PO BOX 88, LOVELL, ME 04051
Nestled into the foothills of the White Mountains lies Kezar Lake, in southwestern Maine. Nine miles long from North to South, and covering a total of 2,510 acres, it is one of the region’s great natural treasures. The watershed includes some 56 square miles, the towns of Lovell, Stoneham and Stow, nine smaller ponds, numerous sparkling streams, and sweeping views of the White Mountains and other mountain ranges. Loons, landlocked salmon, large and small-mouth bass, lake trout, white perch, pickerel, and smelt all find an excellent habitat in these waterways.
Valued for their rare beauty, their recreational opportunities, their ecological richness, and their vital contribution to the local economy, these lakes and streams are vulnerable today as never before. The Kezar Lake Watershed Association, which has been a leader in lake protection since 1969, is dedicated to protecting the Kezar Lake watershed for the enjoyment of future generations.
