CCF is pleased to announce the completion of a new project in partnership with Mass Audubon Society and the Monomoy Regional School System.  In April of 2016 we completed the construction of two vernal pools on the Crowell Road property that abuts the Monomoy Middle School.  Working with Ian Ives from Mass Audubon, CCF and the staff and students of MRMS installed the pools in an endeavor to create living labs for active scientific study and support of endangered wetland creatures, notably, the spade foot toad.  CCF wishes to thank the Massachusetts Cultural Council, the Harwich Cultural Council, the Chatham Cultural Council, the Friends of Pleasant Bay, and the many other individuals and organizations that supported this project. This program is supported in part by a grant from the Chatham and Harwich Cultural Councils, local agencies which are supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency. We are excited to bring nature closer to the future stewards of the land.
