Save Our Salters - Care for Red Brook

 

Red Brook in southeastern Massachusetts is under threat with a proposed zoning change and massive development that would threaten the watershed and the community forever. The MA Council and multiple chapter members are serving on a Save Our Salters committee who are working with local grassroots organizations, other environmental nonprofits, Mass F&W and TU National.

 

Red Brook is truly a special place that TU and other organizations have worked on over 3 decades and spent $4M to restore. There is now a population of self-sustaining, wild brook trout that improve with every passing season. That could all change with the unprecedented zoning change and development that would threaten the watershed (and town wells).

 

Our number one priority is to get the Wareham town residents to vote “NO” on April 10th. We are teaming up with the local Community Land and Water Coalition on a get out the vote campaign - posters, signs, handouts, etc.
