The mission of the Pawtuckaway Lake Improvement Association (PLIA) is to monitor and act upon environmental and safety issues that affect Pawtuckaway Lake, to 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!

Now There’s an Easier Way to View Our Photos
Our three photo galleries–Wildlife, Boat Parade, and Scenic–can now be viewed as slide shows! That enables you to look at and enjoy each separate photo, enlarged and uncrowded by all the other ones on the page. Each gallery page has simple instructions on how to start watching, how to advance to the next photo, or how to choose one to view by itself. We have added three buttons to this Home page, each of which will take you to a different photo gallery with one click. Scroll down below to find them. Enjoy! And remember, we are happy to post photos taken by any of you Pawtuckaway Lake lovers out there! Just email us at Info@PawtuckawayLake.com with an attachment of your photo. After all, that’s where our photos came from in the first place!
