Start Date: 2022

The Cape Cod Ponds Network was convened in 2022 as a response to growing concern over the health of Cape Cod's 890 freshwater ponds. Coordinated through a collaboration between the Cape Cod Commission and Association to Preserve Cape Cod (APCC), the Network is targeted towards pond stewardship organizations, but meetings are open to any interested parties. The Pond Network includes more than 40 pond organizations. To join the Pond Network contact list, or learn more about APCC and their available resources, visit APCC's Cape Cod Ponds Network webpage

The primary goals of the Ponds Network are:

  1. Provide a single forum and meeting place for pond groups throughout the Cape Cod region
  2. Provide a venue for ongoing updates on pond topics of regional interest
  3. Help inform the Cape Cod Freshwater Initiative
  4. Help advance and implement pond improvement strategies and solutions identified through the Freshwater Initiative at the local level
