Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.” -Margaret Mead

This philosophy resounds through the PACRS organization. It is the members who volunteer time, talent, and financial support, that have made PACRS what it is today. PACRS is an organization:

  • with a reputation for taking the methodical approach to solving problems.
  • who intends to have a positive impact for the long-term.
  • who cares about Wisconsin’s lakes and rivers.

We ask you to join the PACRS as an individual ($25) or an organizational member ($50). There are two ways to become a member.

2023 Membership form


When you become a PACRS member you are joining other homeowners’ associations, condo associations, fishing and hunting clubs, local businesses, and individuals that care about our lakes. Since PACRS has begun, our membership numbers have more than doubled.

But membership numbers are not the measure of PACRS’ success. The accomplishments to date are the true indicators of whether PACRS are reaching our goals. These achievements are just the first steps in obtaining the long term objective of cleaner water to be enjoyed by our children, grandchildren, and generations to come.

Thank you for joining the PACRS family.
