Please join us on June 20, 2017 to hear Jason Kemper of the Great Sacandaga Lake Advisory Council (GSLAC) speak about the Council and the progress of the film on the creation of the lake.
Local historians are making a documentary film about the early history of the human-made Great Sacandaga Lake and the effect the lake had on property owners displaced through its creation decades ago. The Great Sacandaga Lake Advisory Council in May 2016 allocated $60,000 for the 54-minute film. Jason is the film project manager. “We have a unique opportunity to document the creation of the reservoir,” Jason said.
Jason resides in the Town of Edinburg and is currently Director of Planning for Saratoga County. Prior employment includes Director of Planning for the Town of Clifton Park, Environmental Specialist for the Town of Clifton Park, NYS Emergency Management Office and the Fulton County Soil and Water Conservation District. Mr. Kemper participates in the Saratoga County fish stocking program and is involved with the Great Sacandaga Lake Fisheries Federation and their activities on the Sacandaga. He received a B.A. in Environmental Science from SUNY Plattsburgh and a Master’s Degree in Urban and Regional Planning from SUNY Albany with a Certificate in GIS Applications. He is currently chairman of the NYS Conservation Fund Advisory Board.
