Healthy shorelines are vital to healthy lakes. “Love Your Lake” (LYL) is a voluntary assessment and stewardship program for owners of properties on lakes. It promotes healthy shorelines and provides information on smart land management choices that will improve water quality, preserve wildlife habitat and support the vitality of their lake.

There were two major fires in Spryfield in 2009 and 2012. Camp fires, near Roaches Pond, in the MacIntosh Run area started the massive fire in the spring of 2009. The ferocious blaze threatened lives, destroyed homes, razed property and incinerated acres of pristine, forested barrens in the Purcells Cove Conservation Lands. More than 100 firefighters and five water bombers were used to fight the inferno.
