The Lake Bomoseen Association is pleased to announce that the KILL the MILfoil 200 Club campaign has surpassed the $60,000 level. Lake homeowners and users have been very generous and this sends the message that many folks care and want to do what is necessary to reduce amount of milfoil in our beautiful lake. After the LBPT has enough on-the-water experience to analyze, purchase of a 2nd harvester will be considered.
The largest contributor to the 200 Club is Green Mountain Feeds, Inc. of Bethel, VT who has invested $20,000. Our thanks go to this company and to all donors to date. Having started the club in September of last year we are extremely grateful to all donors.
Different levels of giving have been formed: Bronze is $200 to $999, Silver $1,000 to $9,999, Gold is $10,000 to $19,999 and Platinum is for donations of $20,000 or more. Contributors will be listed on the LBA website (http://lakebomoseen.mylaketown.com/). We invite any users of Lake Bomoseen to join in the fundraising effort to purchase, maintain and operate another Eco-Harvester. Checks may be made out and mailed to LBPT, PO Box 356, Bomoseen, VT 05732. A PayPal option is available above, should you wish to make a donation now.
Any questions, please contact Davene Brown at firstname.lastname@example.org or call at 518-265-1267.
- This year, Lake Bomoseen has been home for an usual amount of invasive milfoil. We plan to do what we can to reduce it but that comes with a cost. We invite you to support our efforts to accomplish this goal.

Lake Bomoseen Association (LBA)
THE LAKE BOMOSEEN ASSOCIATION, INC. was formed and incorporated in 1956 by a group of neighbors who loved and cared for Lake Bomoseen and wanted to see it thrive.
We continue today to love and care for the Lake and want the Lake to thrive environmentally, financially and socially in the future.
We value and seek to preserve the historic and natural beauty of the Lake. We work to assure the health of the Lake and its fauna and flora.
We are intensively involved in the battle against current and future invasive species and plants. We run a Greeter Program whereby we inspect all boats launched at the public accesses to prevent the introduction of invasive species.
We encourage and promote safe boating; set and light the guidance and warning buoys; provide the Fourth of July fireworks; and sponsor the Neighborhood socials and picnic each year.
We do all this in close concert with the State of Vermont who owns the lake and the Townships of Castleton and Hubbardton, which surround the Lake. We partner together for preservation and lake management. We engage with the Department of Environment Control, the Agency of Natural Resources, Fish and Wildlife, State Representatives and local government and law enforcement on behalf of the Lake community. We enhance communication through quarterly newsletters, an up to date website, continuous Facebook updates, and Community Bulletin Board postings. An LBA sponsored Lake Bomoseen Perk Card provides discounts from local businesses that support our Lake and appreciate our members’ participation.
LBA is a not-for-profit corporation, 501(c)(7) governed by a Board of Directors elected each year at the summer annual meeting by the vote of the General Membership.
LBA is a proud charter member of the Vermont Lakes Coalition.
News & Events 10/20/2015
A big Thank You! to our membership, supporters and friends for another successful summer season. Highlights of the year included our purchase and test operation of the "Bomobelle" weed harvester; our many well attended socials, lecture series and volunteer lake activities; the Sucker Brook clean up; the Water Quality Committee initiatives; and, of course, the crowd pleasing 4th of July fireworks and boat parade.
Special thanks go to the LBA Board and the numerous other volunteers and hosts who provided the invisible, behind the scenes work that made everything else possible.
Planning for the next active season will go on in the colder months while the lake becomes quieter. We hope to make next year even more exciting and successful. Thanks again.Read More Read ALL
