The August 5th Summer Evening on Strong Island was a tremendous success thanks to the land-saving generosity expressed by all. With the warm bay breeze and the setting sun, it’s inspiring that everyone rallied to raise $500,000 toward the 85-acre Six Ponds Great Woods, which is the largest forested landscape left on the Lower Cape. Now we only have $500,000 to go in order to reach the $3 million goal by December 31st.
We extend a huge thank you to Christy & Jay Cashman and their hard-working crew for hosting this fun event and sharing the beautiful Pleasant Bay views. Great food and refreshments with live music and inspiring remarks made for a wonderfully fulfilling experience.
We’re in the home stretch as we strive to save the Great Woods that sits next to more than 315 acres of neighboring conservation land, which could connect more than six miles of hiking trails. If we don’t act, then the land will be lost to a 19-lot subdivision. Let’s band together and raise the final amount needed to create a conservation future for the Great Woods, a future of creating your own Cape Cod memories on woodsy walks along wetland hollows and pond vistas.
