Friend of Chatham Waterways Pond With Trees

For as little as $25 a year for an individual membership or $40 for a family, you are part of FCW and its ongoing effort to further the protection, wise use and enjoyment of Chatham’s fresh and salt waterways and adjoining lands. With no paid staff, our directors meet monthly to discuss and take action on the environmental programs we have designed to protect Chatham’s natural resources. For example, we enlist monitors to test both our salt and freshwater quality, organize volunteers to clean our beaches, encourage young environmentalists with college scholarships, and award Monomoy Regional School teacher grants. Our mission is to champion the protection of Chatham’s waterways and to inspire an appreciation of our natural resources through education and stewardship efforts. Your membership and generous financial support is what allows our work to continue.

FCW members receive home delivery of the Waterways Newsletter and fund the following FCW programs designed to improve the health of our waterways; Chatham Water Watchers (a salt water testing program), Pond Study Group activities, Coastsweep, the Lewis E. Kimball Scholarships to college graduate or upper level undergraduate students majoring in marine or environmental studies, and the Barbara Streibert Monomoy Regional School Grants. We also email notification of our Annual Meeting held in August or an upcoming Chatham lecture you may wish to attend.

You also are contributing to an organization with a long track record of successes that has made a substantial contribution to improving the health of Chatham’s vital water resources.
