OWCA Membership Benefits
As a member of OWCA, you will receive our quarterly newsletter and notification of OWCA events throughout the year. You will be invited to our annual membership meeting, member appreciation event , and our many volunteer activities which focus on improvements to our watershed, planting flowers, trees and shrubs native to our area, and removing harmful invasive plant species. Members can get involved by serving on committees, helping out at events, or offering feedback! The OWCA is currently exploring other benefits for our members, which we hope to announce soon.

Refer a Friend
The best way to expand our membership is through word-of-mouth. If you like OWCA and what it stands for, consider asking your friends to join. As an incentive to our members, for each person that you refer to the OWCA who becomes a member, we will enter your name for a drawing for a prize at our annual membership meeting. What is the prize? WELL…we don’t know yet. But we will make sure it reflects the spirit of the OWCA. Tell your friends to write “referred by” [your name] on the membership form when they join so we can thank you. And get you into the drawing!
