A new coalition of local, regional and national organizations is forming to support the Herring River Restoration Project. The coalition recognizes the significant benefits the restoration project will bring to the region and and the model it provides for restoring other estuaries in Massachusetts and America’s coast.
The Coalition to Restore Herring River Estuary is a broad-based network of environmental, scientific, recreational, economic and civic stakeholders. The Coalition is helping to communicate the vital need and extensive benefits of this project. The Coalition also serves as a network for sharing information about restoration science for education, stewardship and advocacy on behalf of Herring River and other coastal restoration initiatives. Coalition members will receive regular project updates and an invitation to participate in periodic events where project-related scientific information will be presented and discussed.
Many local organizations have already signed on, including Wellfleet and Truro Conservation Trusts, Eastham Conservation Foundation, Association to Preserve Cape Cod, Cape Cod Conservation District, Cape Cod Salties, and Center for Coastal Studies, among many others. The Nature Conservancy, Restore America's Estuaries, Ducks Unlimited and the National Park Conservation Association are among the national groups in the coalition.
