BOSTON, MA — Cape Cod Bay Watch will celebrate the opening of its new office in historic downtown Plymouth by inviting the public to an open house Friday, September 7, from 5:00–7:00 p.m. The office is located at 58C Main Street, Plymouth MA. Meet new friends and learn about our work; this is an informal gathering and all are welcome. Complimentary chowder and offerings from the New World Tavern, a favorite establishment nearby.
The recently launched campaign will provide education and information to local residents and tourists about the fragile ecosystem of Cape Cod Bay and how it is being threatened. Cape Cod Bay Watch (CCBW) is particularly concerned about the impact of the cooling system of Pilgrim Nuclear Power Station, located on Plymouth Bay, and its cycling of 510 million gallons of water a day from the bay.
“The bay supports the fishing industry and aquaculture, tourism and recreation, because of its unique qualities and there are many people and organizations working hard to protect its marine aquatic life so we can have a vibrant and healthy Bay,” said activist Pine duBois of the Jones River Watershed Association. “This office will provide us with a place to bring our findings together and share it with the public.”
Cape Cod Bay Watch is a campaign of affiliated non-profits and individuals who are working to protect the health and welfare of the bay and its ecosystem.
