The Belgrade Lakes Association was officially formed in 1908 by volunteers who were concerned with fishing, safety and proper behavior on Great Pond and Long Pond. These concerns continue today and are addressed, along with many new challenges to the lakes, by a strong and healthy association of volunteers.

In 2008 BLA initiated the Docks to Doorways project, designed to promote good lake stewardship practice and better connect the community with our valued lake resources.  Docks to Doorways inspired our partnership with Colby College and raised the funds needed to build the Maine Lakes Resource Center.  It is a shining example of BLA’s forward thinking ideas.
