The West Harbor Pond Watershed Association funds its many activities through membership dues of $15 per year, donations from members and supporters, and other sources of revenue like occasional spring plant sales and sales of WHPWA merchandise. Because the WHPWA is a 501(c)(3) organization, your dues and contributions are tax-deductible. The activities supported by your dues and generous donations include:

  • Siphon project

  • Water quality monitoring

  • Educational programs, including LakeSmart

  • Social gatherings

  • Donations to the Lake Stewards of Maine and the Maine Lakes Society

  • Operating expenses


Joining is easy!

Does WHPWA membership offer Pond access?

West Harbor Pond has no public beach or public boat launch.  Most of the shoreline is private property.  The public portion of the shoreline can be found at the southern end, off the bridge crossing over Route 27 and the northwestern end, off the bridge crossing Lakeside Drive.  Accessing the pond at these locations requires caution due to steep banks and guardrails.
