Preserve ~ Restore ~ Explore

Congratulations! You helped save 31 acres to Protect Hinckleys Pond, Herring River, Views & Trails

People from all walks of life contributed a range of donations to reach the $800,000 goal for the 31-acre Hinckleys Pond/Herring River Headwaters Preservation Project to protect beautiful views along the bike trail, water quality of both pond and river, walking paths, and wildlife habitat. We'll establish trailhead access soon so you can visit this scenic spot with friends and family.

Meanwhile, we're seeing the pace of development put more lands at risk. We must act now to save these special places.

That's why we need your help to raise $350,000 for the preservation of 3.3 acres with 660 feet of shoreline on Robbins Pond (pictured at right). Please donate to save the land and protect the health of this kettle pond that is connected by a stream to the Herring River.

Thank you for making a lasting, local difference with HCT.

You Make a Lasting, Local Difference with HCT

Harwich with its sandy beaches, salty air, and welcoming beauty is a fragile place. We walk, bike, swim, and enjoy the outdoors in a setting that offers diverse natural habitats, a variety of wildlife, and scenic lands to discover.

But our quality of life is at risk from too much development. Harwich Conservation Trust (HCT) is dedicated to saving land as a smart, practical, and necessary endeavor for everyone that cherishes this special corner of the Cape.

By preserving land and restoring habitats with sound stewardship, together we create opportunities to explore the natural world around us.

We invite you to join HCT and make a lasting local difference for land, water, wildlife, friends, and family.
