The land deal, secured by the Buzzards Bay Coalition and The 300 Committee Land Trust, protects undisturbed wetlands and coastal forest, including over 2,000 feet of shoreline on West Falmouth Harbor and a salt pond.
Removing the dam will help a diverse population of fish and strengthen the river against climate change.
This year we added 76 new places to Discover Buzzards Bay, our online tool that helps you find unique and exciting ways to get outdoors.
Discover the beauty and spirit of Buzzards Bay at the Coalition's 27th annual Buzzards Bay Swim, featuring a spectacular open water course across outer New Bedford Harbor.
Now you can swim across the outer harbor to find your car waiting for you at the finish line!
