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.
