Buzzards Bay Coalition

buzzards bay coalition save the bay

Buzzards Bay needs your help today.

The state budget has left out critical funding for protecting clean water in your community. This funding supports water quality monitoring across southeastern Massachusetts including the Coalition’s Baywatchers program.

Your voice can make a difference.

Tell Senate President Rosenberg and your senator to support budget amendment 226 to restore water quality monitoring funding for Cape Cod and Buzzards Bay.

Contact Senator Rosenberg now by calling (617) 722-1500 and emailing stan.rosenberg@masenate.gov.

Contact our Senator, Vinnie deMacedo, by calling 508-747-6500 and emailing vinny.deMacedo@masenate.gov.

For 23 years, the Baywatchers program has monitored the health of your local waterways. And that research has led to action. On Cape Cod, a major clean water planning process is almost complete and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency just launched a program to reduce nitrogen pollution.

The Baywatchers program is more important than ever. Tell the Senate to support budget amendment 226 to protect clean water in your community today.


WFVA Spring Clean Up

Thanks so much to each of you for helping again this spring to clean up areas of West Falmouth. There were 9 new volunteers this year making a total of over 50 people committed to the task of removing bags of trash. Number one on the list of items picked up once again seems to be "nip" bottles. Beverage bottles were second along with debris from all the "fast food" establishments.

Here are a few "trashy" pictures. The Sotheby sign was returned to their office.

Gratefully, Milt and Sue Williamson





West Falmouth beach protected forever with conservation restriction

West Falmouth protected coastal habitat

The generosity of the Shearer family is shown through a remarkable gift of a conservation restriction co-held by the Buzzards Bay Coalition and The 300 Committee Land Trust.
Near Chapoquoit Beach in West Falmouth lies a special stretch of beach and coastal habitat. Tall dunes rise up over the shore, protecting a community of plants and shrubs sandwiched between West Falmouth Harbor and Buzzards Bay.
View photos of this unique coastal habitat that is now protected forever.

Town posts latest draft of CWMP
July 2013

Dear Friends of Crocker's Pond,

The town has posted the latest draft CWMP which includes their revisions, responses and re-assessments in light of all the comments that were made regarding the previous draft. The committee did include more information on Crocker's Pond which is not a difficult task for them since they included no information on it before. > read more

On Crocker Pond—West Falmouth Neighbors Worry About Pollution
Cape Cod Wave - By Laura M. Reckford

On a recent Friday morning, an osprey swooped low over Crocker Pond in West Falmouth but then angled back up. No fish to be seen.

“They’re not awake yet,” said Mary Bunker Ryther, 50, who grew up on Crocker Pond and now lives just a quarter mile up the road in North Falmouth. Her Norwich terrier Rogue positioned himself on the edge of the Bunker family dock and looked intently into the water, willing a fish to squiggle to the surface. Nothing yet. Just clear water all the way to the bottom.

The pond off West Falmouth Highway (Route 28A) at the intersection of Thomas B. Landers Road is bound by the Bunker property taking up most of one side and Bourne Farm taking up most of the other. It is a serene place.

Ryther knows there are fish in the pond, always have been for the more than 65 years her family has lived next to it. But she is concerned about the future and whether the abundant wildlife in and around the pond will be there for her grandchildren and their children. > Read more
