Join the Cape Decision Lighthouse Society

Join the Cape Decision Lighthouse Society

CDLS relies exclusively on volunteer and donor support to preserve Cape Decision for the enjoyment of future generations. We urge you to join us as we continue to restore these unique facilities by participating in restorations efforts or by contributing financially to future projects.

Membership is open to all and we extend a friendly invitation to join us! Annual dues of $25 entitles voting members to the biannual newsletter 'Decision Light'. The Board of Directors is comprised of representatives from Port Alexander, Port Baker/Port Protection, and Edna Bay/Cape Pole, among other places. Our office is based in Sitka, Alaska. Please fill out the membership application so that we may keep you informed as to our annual meeting, volunteer and job opportunities, and CDI development and restoration progress at the Cape Decision Lighthouse and Lighthouse Reserve. Our annual membership meeting is held in the summer, announced in the spring Decision Light newsletter.

Donations are welcome and will be used for insurance on the lighthouse, postage, office supplies and communications. We will also take donations for specific projects that interest you the most. We thank you for your help and participation in our efforts to preserve this cultural asset and the maritime heritage of this great land for generations to come. We look forward to hearing from you!

All charitable donations and contributions are tax deductible.
