West Pond Home
West Pond Association
Is a not-for-profit cooperative. Our goals are to maintain and operate the outlet (The Dam) as required by state law. To test and monitor the pond water quality. Promote public safety and safeguard the pond's wildlife and environment.

The pink lady's slipper (member of the orchid, Cypripedium acaule) is also known in the U.S. as the moccasin flower.
