Worthley Pond Association

http://worthleypond.org

The Worthley Pond Association works to protect and preserve the beauty and health of our great pond. We sponsor water testing and provide funds for members to attend annual lake meetings sponsored by state and private educational groups.  Our largest, most important effort is to monitor our pond for invasive plants. How?

  • Provide plant identification training opportunities for members
  • Actively support Courtesy Boat Inspections during the summer months, where volunteers and paid staff look for invasive plants on boats entering our pond at both of the pond’s boat launches

The Worthley Pond Association is a non-profit, membership organization that is lead by the WPA Board of Directors, guided by our bylaws, and enhanced by our members.

The committees of the Board ensure that each WPA program and social event is implemented efficiently and effectively, and our volunteers help to lighten the load in many different ways.  Join us in making the WPA the best ever!!
