Join Friends of White Pond for a better pond future!

Email for volunteer opportunities and meeting times.

Friends of White Pond (FOWP) works for the improvement of White Pond’s waters and watershed by promoting education, participation and sound public policy. We gather and present factual information for decision makers and other interested parties. Our website hosts a blog and resources for pond information.

FOWP formed in 1987 as a community-based organization in response to declining water quality in the pond. Since then, the group has engaged in testing, documentation and communication of its findings to the broader public.

More recently, FOWP has written advocacy letters to State officials and engages with other pond associations throughout Massachusetts.

Volunteers help in all areas including community engagement, policy analysis, and hands-on pond activities for kids and adults. We look to match volunteer interests with relevant activities to make helping White Pond a fun activity!
