A Trip That Brings You Closer to Nature

Nickerson Lake

Preservation Since 1983

Nickerson Lake Wilderness Preservation, Inc.


NLWP was formed in 1983 for the purpose of managing 90 acres of forestland and nearly one mile of Nickerson Lake shoreline which had been bequeathed by James Pierce. Since that time and only with the help of generous donors, an additional 97 acres and 3/4 mile of shoreline have been added, to be kept "forever wild". The by-laws have also been changed to include protection of the lake's waters as well as the land around it.

Click here for a map of property owned by NLWP which is approximately 233 acres on the south side of Nickerson Lake. The perimeter of the lake is 5.1 miles and this parcel accounts for 1.75 miles of that frontage.

NLWP MISSION STATEMENT

The charitable and benevolent purpose of this non-profit corporation shall be to provide
to the general public free access to land preserved in its natural state for purposes of
hiking, picnicking, and general out-of-door recreational use subject only to such
regulation as shall be deemed necessary by the corporation in order to safe-guard the
persons of the public and to forever preserve and enhance the natural state of any and
all pieces or parcels of real estate that may be conveyed to it by any person or persons
whatever, including thereby the preservation of all species of flora & fauna found or
subsequently introduced onto said real estate that shall not be deemed detrimental to
the public use.
