“The purpose of the Nickerson Lake Conservation Fund is to support the efforts of Nickerson Lake Wilderness Preservation, Inc. (NLWP) by maintaining and improving the lake's water quality thereby preserving the area's attraction to the general public, the quality of NLWP's real estate, and the area's overall ecology. The operation and liquidation of the fund will be subject to all NLWP By-Laws and Articles of Incorporation to insure all funds collected and disbursed fall within the tax posture of the NLWP.”
