The Buzzards Bay Coalition invites its members and supporters to celebrate the organization’s past year of accomplishments to improve and protect the health of Buzzards Bay during its 30th Annual Meeting on Saturday, May 19from 4:00 to 6:00 pm.
The Annual Meeting will take place in Acushnet at The Sawmill (32 Mill Road), a public park the Coalition restored to protect clean water, improve natural habitats and create a place for people to walk, fish, paddle and explore the outdoors.
The Coalition, which marked its 30th anniversary in 2017, works to protect clean water in our community through education, conservation, research and advocacy. This work includes upgrading septic systems to reduce harmful nitrogen pollution to coastal waters, conserving the region’s most vulnerable natural lands, monitoring the health of local waterways, and leading youth and adults on outdoor programs to help more people discover Buzzards Bay.
The Annual Meeting, which is free and open to all, will feature the presentation of the 2018 Buzzards Bay Guardian Awards, the Coalition’s highest honor. Buzzards Bay Guardians demonstrate outstanding service in the cleanup, restoration or protection of Buzzards Bay as a citizen volunteer, an organization or a public official or employee. A reception with Coalition supporters, board and staff will follow, featuring hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar.
Immediately preceding the Annual Meeting, join the Coalition for the third annual Acushnet River Herring Festival, a free family-friendly festival at The Sawmill featuring live music and animal shows, fishing and canoeing, walking restoration tours and more. The Acushnet River Herring Festival will run from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm.
