New to the Indian Ponds?  Please consider joining the IPA.  The Resident's Guide will give you a guided tour.  


Both residents and non-residents are welcome to join the Indian Ponds Association. We are a volunteer organization with the sole mission of preserving the ponds and their environment. We conduct water quality testing, sponsor environmental impact studies, and provide a single concerted voice for lobbying the Town and Commonwealth for resources to control invasive species and excess nutrients. If you are a resident or are simply visiting and are interested in recreational water activities, bird watching, fishing, or simply enjoying the quiet ambience of the three ponds, then we would appreciate you supporting our mission by becoming a member or simply donating to either our Pond Restoration Fund or Scholarship Fund.

To join or donate simply fill out our online membership form.  Upon pressing submit you will be redirected to a page detailing various payment options including PayPal.

(The IPA is a 501(c)(3) organization, and your membership dues and other contributions are tax-deductible.)
