Friends of Waterbury Reservoir is a Vermont-registered 501(C)3 non-profit organization committed to protecting and enhancing the ecological, recreational, historical, and community values of the Waterbury Reservoir.

We accomplish this through:
• Reservoir stewardship
• Research and community involvement
• Collaboration with all stakeholders
• Connecting people and place

The Waterbury Reservoir is a thoughtfully-maintained, safe, and clean public-access recreation area located at the crossroads of world-class resort towns and yet offers a remote experience for users. The Waterbury Reservoir is recognized as a unique resource and an important conservation and economic asset for the people of the state of Vermont.

We believe it is essential to:
• Strengthen relationships with stakeholders including neighbors, businesses, governments and other organizations and extend our role as convener and supporter;
• Build a community of water- and land-based Reservoir users; and
• Support stewardship and conservation of the natural world on and around the Reservoir.

We believe it is important to:
• Provide access, and promote responsible recreation as a means to engage people directly and pass on timeless values;
• Honor the history of the communities that existed on the Reservoir and their contribution to the area;
• Collaborate with other organizations in accomplishing shared goals; and
• Use outdoor recreation as a vehicle to help youth engage with and learn about the natural world.
