DNSI Monitoring

During the busy summer months, Barnstable Clean Water Coalition (BCWC)’s Water Stewards have an active presence on Dead Neck Sampson's Island and waters throughout the Three Bays. The staff patrols DNSI to ensure visitors adhere to rules that protect threatened nesting shorebirds, the island’s fragile dune habitat, and educate boaters about clean boating practices. Whether engaging visitors on the beach or boaters on the water, the staff educate the public about problems facing our local waters, and how they can become part of the solution.
