ECF Secures State Grant to Acquire - 50 Crosby Village Road 1.7 acres
ECF Is applying for grants to help us buy 1.6 acres to protect wildlife and water quality near Rock Harbor on Eastham's bayside.
ECF is working to raise the $100,000 purchase price for 2 building lots that, if preserved, can help protect wildlife habitat and water quality for the Inner Cape Cod Bay area of Critical Environmental Concern. The 2 lots, on Sim's Way (Dyer Prince area) are appraised at over $400,000, but the owners recognize the community benefit of preserving the land at a lower sale value to ECF, if we can raise the funds by January 2019. In addition to applying for grants, we hope that individual donors will step up to help us! Please help us with a donation today. Click here for our membership page to contribute.
ECF learned in October that it succeeded in its application for $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.
