Starflower in Myles Standish by Salvatore Raciti

We are always seeking new members, new volunteers and new ideas...

We have a lot of projects going on and are always looking for helping hands.

Financial support helps too. Our biggest expense last year was for renting equipment for the DCR to do work on trails and the equestrian campground. We're not allowed to use such equipment ourselves in the State Forest but if we can help get the work done, we're all for it. Erecting bluebird boxes and osprey poles, Park Serve Day, the educational materials we supply, running our annual 'Take Me Fishin' fishing derby and other events are all supported by your membership contributions.

Supporting Membership is our basic membership level, entitling you to attend any of our events, vote at our Annual Meeting and know that you are giving to support the forest.

PLUS, you'll receive a membership card, entitling you to take advantage of discounts offered to members by some of our sponsors, including:

  • a 10% discount on any nursery stock and perennial plant purchases and 10% off any brand fly spray at Morrisons Home and Garden Center, located at 90 Long Pond Road in Plymouth.
  • EMS Club Days, where twice a year members with their cards receive 25% off EMS-branded items and 20% off all other items.

If you can afford a little more, as a Premier Member ($15 a year more for individuals; $20 for a family), you'll receive:

  • A choice of a Friends of Myles Standish carabiner or knapsack
  • $3.00 off one of our comfy cotton FMSSF forest green tee-shirts

Underwriting members ($100 and above) receive our undying gratitude, recognition in our newsletter and a choice of "A Guide to Invasive Plants in Massachusetts (2nd edition)" or field guide to animals book"A Field Guide to the Animals in Vernal Pools" by Leo Kenney and Matthew Burne.

We hope you will join us today.

Don't be shy . . .
