If we don't save our lake for our grandchildren, who will? Protecting this treasure is our obligation to future generations.

Annual membership is $25.00 and is extended for any donation of that amount or greater. These amounts will receive a charitable tax receipt, which is mailed in February.

Life Membership is $1,000.00 per individual or couple.

We also need volunteers to sit on the Board or Committees (Natural Heritage, Built Heritage, Fundraising). Meetings are usually five or six times per year and our Board is composed of a mix of permanent and seasonal residents.

Please use the form here to complete and mail your cheque. We are not equipped for credit card or online donations at this time. Thank you.
