Unfortunately, the future of the lake is threatened by invasive weeds and tenacious beavers who have clogged the dam at the northern end (click here to learn more). It can cost upwards of $20,000 each year to manage these weeds and keep water flowing through the dam.
Because the Town of Leverett does not provide funding for this upkeep, FLP must raise money through donations -- so we really need your financial support. We'd also love volunteers to help us do weed surveys, raise funds, dam work and more. Contact us for more info.
When you visit Leverett Pond, remember the following:
2. Leave the lake as you found it. Please carry out all trash. Don't cut down trees.
3. Consider releasing fish you catch. The pond is not stocked and is still recovering from a weather-related fish kill several years ago.
