The BPC participated at the Volunteer Recruitment Fair on Friday, September 8, held at the Brewster Ladies Library. Our representatives shared information about the BPC's events and activities, as well as opportunities to volunteer in a range of our committees and initiatives. Pictured below are Kristi Dondlinger, an avid BPC volunteer, and Ron Essig, a BPC Board member and Citizen Science Team Leader. In addition to Kristi and Ron, Marty Burke, also a BPC Board member and Citizen Science Team Leader, assisted with staffing our table at the fair.

This could be the last planned bike ride on the Cape Cod Rail Trail this summer (unless there are requests for more!). In order to get ready and chat about the ride, please plan on meeting no later than 9:15 AM at the CCRT Parking Lot on Rt 137 across from Ferretti's Market.
We will head west on the CCRT through Harwich, Dennis, and into Yarmouth, passing Sheep, Seymour, Long, and Hinckleys Ponds, the West Reservoir, and over the new Bass River bridge. A fun ride on a fairly new spur of the CCRT!
Please read the BPC Cycling Group “Rules of the Road" beforehand. The notes will tell you all you need to know from clothes to wear, how to ride safely in a group, simple cycling terms, and safety thoughts and tips.
The ride is limited to 12 riders and FREE to BPC members. Register here!

Brewster Council on Aging
673 Main Street, Brewster
The BPC invites you to learn about the Pond Education Program that we developed for the children in Brewster's elementary schools. Through a combination of a short presentation, a puppet show, and hands-on activities at a pond, students learn to identify pond creatures, how to recognize the features of a healthy pond, and the importance of protecting our ponds. The BPC hopes that by attending this presentation, you will also gain a greater appreciation of the diversity of the amazing ecosystems of our ponds and will become active participants in protecting this important resource.
To register, please call the Council on Aging at 508-896-2737.
