FOM is a grassroots, volunteer based organization. We rely on volunteers to report conditions around their section of the lake, to help with mailings, or to run the FOM booth at events!
If you are interested in being on our volunteer list, please email or call with your contact information and what you are interested in helping with.


Volunteer at our Oakfest booth or other events listed on our Event page!!

Invasive Plant Paddle

Come and enjoy the day learning about Invasive Plants, making new lake friends and Paddle around our lake! Our next IPP is July 10th. Please contact us if you are interested in joining us.

Special Projects

Help out with making and installing benthic barriers.

Courtesy Boat Inspectors

Current funding allows us limited coverage on the landings, help fill those voids!

Cove Patrol Volunteers Needed

Because we are not able to constantly monitor every shoreline of our 8-mile lake, we encourage people to “recreate with a purpose.” Send us reports of suspicious plants, erosion areas, and other ecological activity. Please sign up to be our "eyes on the water!"
