Thanks to strong community support across Cape Cod and beyond from members, foundations and businesses, HCT successfully saved the 49-acre Pleasant Bay Woodlands in East Harwich just 1,000 feet back from Round Cove. HCT supporters helped to preserve the largest undeveloped, unprotected landscape in the Pleasant Bay watershed to protect woods, water and wildlife. Otherwise, a 40-lot subdivision could have occupied the site with groundwater flowing directly into Round Cove on Pleasant Bay.  We extend special thanks to the Pleasant Bay Challenge donors including the Wequassett Resort, The John T. Ryan, Jr. Memorial Foundation, The Friends of Pleasant Bay and three anonymous families who matched every donation dollar-for-dollar. Thank you to everyone who contributed any amount to this once-in-a-lifetime project!

Just this year, thanks to your support HCT has saved: 49 acres to protect Pleasant Bay, habitat for wildlife (including box turtle [pictured]), and the drinking water supply; 11 acres on Sand Pond; 3/4-acre with a vernal pool; and there’s more we hope to save by Dec. 31st including land on a herring spawning pond. Please consider a year-end gift. Help us save more special places.
