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 the annual plant sale 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:
Water quality monitoring
Educational programs, including LakeSmart
Donations to the Volunteer Lake Monitoring Program and the Maine Lakes Society
Joining is easy!
Print and complete the membership form and mail it with your tax-deductible dues and any additional tax-deductible donation to:
P.O. Box 3
West Boothbay Harbor, ME 04575
