Membership Information

Membership Information

Membership in Friends of Upton State Forest is open to anyone interested in preserving the natural and historic resources of Upton State Forest. Presently we have over 140 members from five states.

Associate Members will receive the newsletter but do not have voting privileges or enjoy any discounts. They do have the satisfaction of knowing that their membership is a statement of support for our goals and increases the leverage we have when speaking to public officials.

Associate Members wishing to upgrade to Regular membership at any time during the year will have their original dues credited.

Questions may be directed to the Friends at their email address: or by mail at PO Box 258, Upton, MA 01568-0258.

You will find a link to download a membership form below. Upon receipt of your form with payment you will receive a card for each member, a copy of the By Laws and a current newsletter.
