Buzzards Bay Coalition
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 email@example.com.
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.

West Falmouth beach protected forever with conservation restriction
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.
