Makepeace Neighborhood Fund Grant Awarded to HPWA
HPWA’s project proposal for “Herring Ponds Watershed Awareness Education” was one of 33 projects selected for (partial) funding in 2012 by the A.D. Makepeace Company. Brian, John, Rali and Lee attended the May 17 Grant Awards Ceremony and Grantee Reception at Box Mill Hall on the Makepeace Company campus in Wareham. Since 2005 the company has invested over $1 million in projects that support agriculture, health care, education, the environment, historic preservation, and community housing in towns where the company operates.
In this project the Education and Outreach Committee will create, print and mail a 20-page watershed information and stewardship booklet to residents within the state-designated Herring River Area of Critical Environmental Concern. Our completion target is Spring 2013. Distribution of a digital version via e-mail and the association’s web site will extend the impact of the project to additional residents and site visitors.
Although we did not receive the full amount of our request, a grant match challenge by a generous summer resident of Great Herring Pond will enable us to fully fund all project activities and to meet the proposed goals.
If you or someone you know (friends, family, or student) are interested in getting in on the ground floor and volunteering on this project as a researcher, writer, editor, artist, photographer, or in any other capacity please contact Lee Pulis, Education and Outreach Committee chair, at 617 216-4921 or by email at email@example.com.
