Preserve. Protect. Educate. We are impassioned advocates working to ensure the continued beauty, integrity, safety and survival of Lake Glenville.


In 2020, FLG established a partnership with Equinox Environmental to provide regularly scheduled water testing services as part of an ongoing water quality program for the lake.

FLG's Fireworks Make a Big Bang Over Lake Glenville!

Saturday, July 3rd, 2021 marked FLG's 24th annual Fireworks Over Lake Glenville, and it couldn't have been a bigger success. The weather cooperated and the crowds on both land and the water thrilled at being part of this on-going tradition.
