The mission of the Pawtuckaway Lake Improvement Association (PLIA) is to monitor and act upon environmental and safety issues that affect Pawtuckaway Lake, picture1to educate the public on the conservation, protection, and improvement of  water quality, natural shoreline, wildlife habitat, recreational resources, safety, and natural resources as they pertain to the welfare and interest of Pawtuckaway Lake.  To that end, the PLIA collaborates with conservation commissions, planning boards, state and federal entities, land trusts and other conservation organizations working to conserve or protect natural resources that have an impact on the Lamprey River watershed that includes Pawtuckaway Lake.  We invite you to explore these pages, become informed about our organization, come visit and enjoy our “little piece of paradise”, become a PLIA member, and consider joining our dedicated volunteers to help us achieve our mission.  You’ll be in good company!

Lyrics to Annual Meeting Sing Along

A number of years ago, our President Tom Duffy wanted to capture the attention of some school children and teach them about lake ecology.  He decided to write some amusing but educational lyrics to be sung to the tune of Three Blind Mice. At the PLIA’s Annual Meeting on June 8, he led a rousing chorus of the song. There are some good lessons hidden amid the silly verses.  Check out the lyrics here…
