Our focus is on unifying public, private, and non-profit constituencies with the goal of funding a multi-year scientifically informed pond restoration. Your financial support will be critical to raising $3 million for the first five years of work. Given our holistic view of Chilmark Pond as a single ecosystem with many stakeholders, our goal is to use these funds to advance restoration projects employing the very best available science.
