The Friends of Winter Pond is an organization, dedicated to the maintenance and protection of the ponds on behalf of present and future generations.
Members of the organization have included those from the pond watershed areas, environmentalists interested in its maintenance for study and recreation, water sports enthusiasts from the town and wider areas and direct abutters who value all the above as well as its reflection of the seasons and wildlife migrations.
Most activities throughout the year, serving the ponds, are open to the public and include speakers, pond clean-up days, involvement of local scout groups and public review of projects through the year. The Friends also offer their own expertise as speakers to other local groups with an interest in ecology issues and programs in their own areas of interest. The Friends are members of Sustainable Winchester and the Mystic Valley Watershed Association.
