To register your boat:
Go to www.TamaracLakes.org.
Under the “About Tamarac” tab, look for “Beaches & Canoe Rules.
Complete the link for the online registration form (also available here).
Once the form is completed, you will receive a tag for your boat.
TLA rules state that all boats are to be removed from TLA property by Halloween. Please register your boar so that we will have contact information for you. Also, please remove your boat from TLA property ASAP. Any boat not removed by Halloween may be confiscated and sold by the TLA Board.

REMINDER TO ALL DOG OWNERS:
In order for everyone to safely enjoy our open spaces and walking trails, Medford Township and the TLA Board of Directors would like to offer a reminder that, per Chapter 66 of the Medford Township Administrative code, dogs must be kept on a leash. Also, dog owners are required under this same ordinance to remove their pet's waste from our open space and trails. Pet waste is not only offensive, but it can pollute water as it is washed by rain into our lakes. Help keep our lakes clean by doing your part to clean-up after your dogs.
Did You Know???
It’s illegal to dispose of brush, trees and yard material on common grounds. We still have people throwing their brush and tree limbs in the common grounds. Please dispose of properly!
