SIMS WAY Project A Success!
ECF is pleased to announce that the purchase of the 1.6 acre property on Sims Way in Eastham was finalized on January 31, 2019.

ECF Secures State Grant to Acquire - 50 Crosby Village Road 1.7 acres
In 2017, ECF received $31,200 from the Conservation Partnership Program, of the State's Executive Office of Environmental Affairs. Super news! These award funds were used to help secure 1.7 acres of land with frontage on Eastham's Herring Pond, providing public access to the eastern shore off the Cape Cod Rail Trail and Crosby Village Road. ECF thanks Mark Robinson, of the Compact of Cape Cod Conservation Trusts, and Mike Lach, of The Compact and Harwich Conservation Trust for their key roles in this effort.
