Mountain Park Watershed Preservation Society (MPWPS) The MPWPS applied for nonprofit corporation status in 2004. The society was formed to restore, protect and preserve the lakes, streams and wetlands of Mountain Park through community involvement, environmental monitoring, education and research, grant applications and other fund-raising activities. Although the MPWPS was organized by a group of Mountain Park residents, membership is open to all, as the health of the city's wetlands, streams and lakes is vital to maintaining the quality of life enjoyed by every resident as well as those from outside the city who believe in the preservation of the environment and our historical past. Join the MPWPS to help save the watershed.

Membership requires no dues or meeting attendance. All you have to do is show up when a project is underway.

Members benefit far more than our city because the projects support the concepts of community pride and spirit. Please join in when you see a MPIC sign at the top of the hill announcing a new project -- whenever it arises!.
