Updates from the Coalition
- On-The-Water Activity. The Onset Bay Center launched its new programs in early July to great fanfare. While the offerings changed to accommodate social distancing guidelines, they still got more than 200 children and adults out on the water, kayaking and rowing, fishing and quahogging, and discovering all that the Bay offers. Wareham Week published a short feature with photos on the center's first weeks operating from the renovated Onset Bathhouse. Find out what else is in store by visiting onsetbaycenter.org.
- Tee time. The Buzzards Bay Coalition Annual Golf Tournament offers you the rare chance to play at the beautiful Bay Club in Mattapoisett with like-minded friends and colleagues who share your love of Buzzards Bay. Your participation supports the ongoing cleanup of New Bedford Harbor. For more information or to register, visit https://savebuzzardsbay.org/golf.
Keep the Watershed Ride rolling
The 14th Annual Watershed Ride is slated for Sunday, Oct. 4, 2020. While this year's event will be adapted to meet social distancing guidelines for the safety of participants and volunteers, we still need you to make the ride a success. There's plenty of space and many different tasks that need doing, from check-in and water stop assistance to on-the-road support. To get involved, contact Volunteer Coordinator Colin Zeigler.
