Preserving and enhancing our natural resources in the Herring Ponds region for generations to come.



With your help we have:

  • Sampled water quality in Plymouth’s Great and Little Herring Ponds since 2008
  • Raised $38,380 to help with the Town CPC purchase of the 54-acre Condon property on Roxy Cahoon Road. It is an important recharge area for Great Herring Pond
  • Preserved with CPC 43.6-acres between Little Herring and Triangle Ponds, now the David E. Alper Nature Preserve
  • Established a Pine Barrens Plant ID Trail at Alper Preserve
  • Built 100 Screech Owl and Bluebird nest boxes
  • Printed and distributed Watershed Stewardship and Volunteer Action Guide to 2500 households
  • Remediated storm water runoff with the Town of Plymouth at 2 sites on Great Herring Pond
