Please join us on Saturday morning, April 10th, from 9:00 to 10:00 AM, for Brewster Pond Coalition’s 2021 Pond Summit. This year’s topics include cyanobacteria, stopping erosion at Lower Mill Pond, and the announcement of an exciting new grant program!
We welcome Nancy Leland, an affiliate faculty member at the Center for Freshwater Biology and Ecotoxicology at the University of New Hampshire. Nancy will tell us about the Lower Mill Pond food web study that began in 2019. This study, conducted by BPC volunteer citizen scientists, is part of our overall research to understand cyanobacteria in our ponds. In addition, lead citizen scientist Marty Burke will describe what our volunteers are doing to identify cyanobacteria in local ponds and the aerosolized toxins that they generate in the air around them.
The Volunteers: BPC Board members Nancy Ortiz and Rob Condon will join Bruce Swiren for a chat about their successful stormwater retention project at Lower Mill Pond.
The Grant Program: BPC is pleased to announce the creation of a new grant program designed to support and incentivize community efforts to improve our ponds. Find out if your pond is eligible for funding to improve your pond’s water quality.
