Mushroom Photo Contest
(posted 8/23/21)

With the continued on/off/on/off rain pattern, the mushroom population continues to thrive in our lake-side wild patches and nearby forests. Many mushroom photos were submitted during the 'Flower' contest this summer, so I alerted everyone to save those for future submission.
The time has come!
No 'sub-categories' this time - we'll gather the photos and submit them to a judging panel. Judges are unpredictable, and may reward the 'largest' or 'prettiest', or any mushrooms with fairies in the scene, we don't know.

Garden Flower Photo Contest Winners
(posted 8/23/21)

This has been our most successful contest to date: 85 Garden Flower submissions plus 28 Wild Flower submissions; a total of 113 flower photos submitted! We expected we would have about SIX photos to show to the general membership at the Annual Meeting to conduct the final judging, but the pre-judging resulted in a total of ELEVEN photos because there were too many great shots that were, in the words of the judges, "just too good to leave out."

Welcome to QQLA

QQLA is a volunteer, non-profit organization of nearly 200 member families dedicated to preserving and protecting the quality of our two lakes (Quaboag and Quacumquasit are better known as North and South Ponds, and are located in Brookfield, East Brookfield and Sturbridge Massachusetts) and the surrounding watershed through the promotion of responsible, effective environmental policies.


QQLA Focus

Maintain healthy lake environment and water quality though regular water testing.

* Monitor for invasive vegetation species, algae, and phosphorus and other pollutants.
* Use best practices to manage water quality issues.
* Educate the lake community on best environmental practices.
* Communicate and coordinate our activities with the three towns, Brookfield, East Brookfield and Sturbridge and the Mass DEP.
* Foster and encourage a sense of community for QQLA members.
* Monitor water flow direction.
* Participate with East Brookfield in the operation of the flow barrier to prevent high water backflow into South Pond.

We invite you to tour this website and learn more about QQLA activities and encourage your involvement in QQLA.
