Where does your money go?
To plant hundreds of daffodil bulbs, furnish a habitat for migrating birds,
maintain the beauty of the park and the environmental integrity of Manhasset Bay.
It is your contribution that directly affects the quality of care we can provide.

Many people assume Nassau County tax dollars suffice for upkeep of Baxter’s Pond and we wish that were true. But actually, we’re only a very tiny part of the Nassau County 30+ parks system, and the funds and attention we receive are equally miniscule,
despite our prominent location in Port Washington.

To fulfill the mission of the Baxter’s Pond Foundation we must constantly raise money. Nassau County does not have the public funds
 or manpower to maintain the beauty and the environmental integrity of the landscape.
Only private funds from generous donors like you can make the difference.
Together, we will keep Baxter's Pond beautiful!
