At its 26th Annual Meeting in Falmouth on May 15, the Coalition recognized individuals and groups from across the Buzzards Bay watershed for their contributions to protecting and restoring the Bay during the last year.
The Weweantic River is home to the United States' southernmost population of rainbow smelt: a small, silvery fish that lives its entire life in Buzzards Bay. But smelt appear to be dwindling in the Weweantic.
The Coalition recently worked with the Wankinquoah Rod and Gun Club, the town of Middleborough, and the Massachusetts Department of Fish and Game to protect more than 350 acres of woods, wetlands, ponds, and cranberry bogs.
