Lake Management  Committee (LMC)     

2 volunteers needed   +  “Friends of the Lake”                 

Volunteers Needed: We would like two more members.

Any skill and experience would be relevant. Some physical ability would be useful but not necessary. A desire to work and manage lakes, streams, wetlands and such ecosystems would be great.

We also welcome as many “Friends of the Lake” as possible. Friends of the Lake volunteers would keep an eye out for the well-being of our lake, dam and surroundings and report any trash, unusual wildlife activity and trespassing- basically additional eyes and ears for the LMC. On the rare occasion where we need additional help in some activity, “Friends” will be asked to pitch in.

For more information or to volunteer, please contact Jim Furniss, 828-884-7280,

The Purpose of the LMC is to develop and implement guidelines which focus on the use, protection, preservation, and enhancement of Deer Lake, its streams, wetlands, and the dam, in harmony with the mission of the conservation organization, Conserving Carolina (CC) and the Conservation Easement Management Committee (CEMC) of the Deerlake Village Community Association (DVCA).
