A sampling of Brewster Pond Photos submitted by YOU!
Many answered the BPC’s call for pond-fun images for inclusion in the 2020 Brewster Ponds Guide. They illustrate Brewster ponds’ beauty and the many ways we enjoy them! Enjoy this collage sampler of submitted images, created by BPC volunteer, Amy Darbyshire.
The Pond Guide includes photos submitted by Rob Boas, Barry Donahue, Laura Eldridge, Andrea Genser, Eric Levy, Theresa Martin, Sue Meyer, Kathy Nelson, Carl Santamaria, Judy Stevens, Susan Spencer, and Mike Wajewski. All submitted images--whether or not in the Ponds Guide--are now part of the BPC photo archive for use in other BPC publications, social media, and communications. Thank you all, for your contributions!

Help the Town Plan Pond Conservation and Recreational Needs! Fill out the 2020 Brewster Open Space and Recreational Plan Community Survey
The Town of Brewster is in the process of updating its Open Space and Recreation Plan, which provides a framework for continued conservation and recreation planning in Brewster. The update is required for Brewster to remain eligible for State funding to acquire and protect open space and recreation parcels. The first part of the process is to survey Brewster residents to obtain their views on the Town’s open space and recreation priorities.
Click here to access the survey. Several survey questions relate to Brewster ponds and recreation:
- the importance of preserving buffer areas around ponds and suggested town preservation actions
- frequency of visiting Town ponds and adjacent conservation lands
- input into future recreational pond activity planning
Your input is important! Thanks for taking a few moments to fill out the survey!
