Residents of the area have been looking out for Sandy Lake and area’s welfare for at least 50 years. Since 2014, the Sandy Lake Conservation Association has partnered with The Sackville Rivers Association, which has had a role for decades. The Bedford Lions Club shares the goals to protect the lake. In the past, the Sandy Lake Watershed Association protected the lake, and prior to that there was the Sandy Lake Resident’s Association, itself preceded by the Sandy Lake Ratepayers Association.

The Sandy Lake Regional Park Coalition formed in 2018. The groups, listed below, see that protection of this unique and long-recognized natural area is an important goal for the entire region.
