Eelgrass will soon get the chance to reclaim more of its former territory in outer West Falmouth Harbor, restoring a critical resource for the coastal habitat.

With a $100,000 state grant, the Buzzards Bay Coalition will replace 25 percent of the outer harbor’s conventional moorings with new conservation moorings designed to allow eelgrass to grow back in places where it was once plentiful.

You can feel it coming: the air is subtly growing warmer, green shoots are poking from the soil, and the sun is sticking around a little longer every evening. Spring is on its way, and we humans aren’t the only animals who can sense the change.
