FREE event bringing senior executives from the state, county and scientific communities together to update the Bass River region on the efforts to protect the future of the waterway.
YARMOUTH, MA — Friends of Bass River (FOBR) today announced that the speaker program for their First Annual “Save Our River” Symposium, on May 3rd, 3-6 pm at the West Dennis Yacht Club, has been finalized.
The FREE event, which is open to the public, is intended to provide the community living on or near the Bass River and its 10,500 acre watershed, with an update on the state of the river as well as a snapshot of the projects that will impact the region, such as the upcoming replacement of the Route 28 bridge.
Friends of Bass River is pleased to be able to welcome the following speakers next Friday:
The speaking program for this event will begin at 3 pm and will run through 5 pm. It will be immediately followed by a wine and cheese social, and all attendees are invited to stay and meet their neighbors, friends, fellow FOBR members, as well as our presenters.
Established by a group of faithful private citizens dedicated to the guardianship of the ponds, coves and sub-basins of the Bass River Estuarine System, the Friends of Bass River is committed to preserving and protecting the river’s delicate ecosystem so that it will remain healthy and accessible to all for generations to come. These goals are achieved through monitoring, vigilance and direct management. Without the energies of this nonprofit and its supporters, the Bass River will almost certainly experience further, potentially irreversible damage that could alter coastal life as we now know it.
The “Save Our River” symposium is FREE, and open to the public, but capacity is limited to the first 160 who RSVP. To attend, please RSVP your request…as soon as possible…to Brian Weiner at [email protected]
