The Lagoon Pond Association of Martha’s Vineyard is an organization dedicated to improving the quality of the waters and the environment of the lands surrounding Lagoon Pond. The pond is a glacial pond bounded by two towns, namely, Oak Bluffs and Vineyard Haven. As with many bodies of water on Cape Cod and the islands of Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket, the quality of the water has deteriorated with the growth of population and the building of residences close to the shores of the ponds. Lagoon Pond is further threatened by the underground flow of contaminated water from other towns far removed from the pond.
We work through local political entities, town services and independent, citizen-directed projects. We welcome everyone to join us in preserving a unique place and leaving it for the enjoyment of future generations.
We welcome new members, both individual and business, to the Lagoon Pond Association (LPA). The LPA is a public interest group dedicated to improving the quality of the environment around Lagoon Pond on the island of Martha’s Vineyard. LPA members have the opportunity keep up to date on critical issues influencing the water quality in the Lagoon through both our own programs and more generally by affecting the policies and actions of several governmental entities that have influence on the environment around the pond. We maintain a website and send out regular emails recording upcoming events and other notifications. We hold an ANNUAL MEETING in July and an AFTERNOON SOCIAL in August, the dates of which can be found in the calendar on the website.
The dues are (presently) $30 per year per family. The LPA is registered with the IRS and the Massachusetts Secretary of State. All contributions are tax deductible.
