Hey Waquoit Bay, Has it Really Been 30 Years?
Time sure flies. A very happy 30th anniversary to our Waquoit Bay Reserve in Massachusetts—and here’s to many more. Perched on the southern coast of Cape Cod, the reserve’s land was first purchased in the 1970’s by a group of concerned citizens and became a Reserve in 1988. The reserve’s proximity to development have made it an ideal place to study the impact of human activity on estuaries and test creative ideas for communities to live in balance with natural areas. Over the past decade, the Waquoit Bay Reserve has become a leader in understanding how to manage blue carbon in wetlands.
