In the Centre of our Community


We are a dedicated group of volunteers who work to protect First Lake so that future generations will be able to enjoy a clean, freshwater lake with a safe, healthy shoreline. Friends of First Lake holds monthly meetings, participates in a yearly clean-up, and supports development and improvement of public spaces and trails around the lake.


Preserve and Protect



The “FOFL” is a volunteer, non-profit, community based environmental organization whose main goal is to preserve and protect the integrity, water quality, and shoreline of First Lake, a large fresh water lake located in the community of Lower Sackville, Nova Scotia.
