Three Bays Preservation renamed, focus expanded
Three Bays Preservation Inc. has changed its name to the Barnstable Clean Water Coalition and expanded its focus to be a town-wide organization dedicated to restoring and preserving clean water in marine estuaries, ponds, rivers, and coves throughout Barnstable, according to a statement from the organization.
The nonprofit was founded in 1996 to dredge areas around a barrier island and undertake conservation, science and policy initiatives in and around the watershed that includes West, North and Cotuit bays, the statement says.
The coalition unveiled its vision for its new focus at a June 23 open house, at which Executive Director Zenas Crocker explained the four cornerstones of its mission — monitoring, education, advocacy and mitigation, the statement says.
