As a supporter of Harwich Conservation Trust you donate funds to help preserve natural lands that protect water resources, wildlife habitats, scenic views, walking trails, and our shared Cape Cod quality of life that depends on healthy ecosystems. Together let’s look deeper and closer at the diversity of habitats and the wildlife within that also call Cape Cod home. You will gain a wider awareness and appreciation of the foraging, nesting, and habits of selected species as well as the importance of land preservation from Peter who has been studying and teaching about Cape Cod ecology for more than 40 years.
