Save Lake of the Lillies is non-profit environmental group committed to the dredging, restoration and preservation of Lake of the Lillies in Point Pleasant Beach, NJ.

Lake of the Lillies is a 21-acre natural lake located just one block from the ocean. Legendary for its great bird-watching, fishing and wildlife habitat, Lake of the Lillies was once one of the Jersey shore’s premier jewels.

According to long-time residents, the lake was once healthy and pristine; averaging 5-6 feet in depth with a few isolated 8-9 foot holes where rumored freshwater springs flowed into the lake.

Through the years the lake has become increasingly shallow and is now in a degraded condition, with an average depth of one foot or less.


"The ultimate test of man’s conscience may be
his willingness to sacrifice something today for future generations, whose words of thanks will not be heard."

- Gaylord Nelson, founder of Earth Day
