Protecting the Bay and the Spit for Generations to Come
Save Popponesset Bay Sept. 5, 2016

So long Summer and welcome to storm season.  Today's storm is Tropical Storm Hermine and we'll have 5-7 foot waves hitting the Spit.  The Spit remains vulnerable in several areas, and we hope our new dunes will hold up without  much reinforcement.  We will update you on any damage sustained and our plans over the Winter.

This is a good chance to reinforce  why we need to raise more money this season for our Capital project. We are currently making great progress but repairing or reinforcing  the Spit can only  take place once we have  adequate funds.   The ideal state of the Spit is to have a high dune with lots of grass and a gradual slope to the waterline.  We currently have a well constructed high dune with grass but do not have enough money to build up the beach yet.  
Please make a tax-deductible contribution today so we can take advantage of the upcoming Winter dredge. 

Thank you to those who have contributed this 2016-2017 fiscal year which began in July.  
Please consider making a 3-year pledge now or your annual contribution so we can build up the beach and plan out our channel enhancement in practical phases.  
The sooner we build up the beach the better off we will be in sustaining the integrity of the Spit down the road.  
The time to act is now.  Let's get this Capital project done asap and get back to normal annual maintenance mode. Thank you for all you do to protect and preserve our "happy place!"
