The Monarch butterflies have arrived but in fewer numbers than last year, so far. The great monarch migration from their overwintering habitat in Mexico began about 5 months ago.
The year before last was a terrible road kill year for Eastham’s diamondback terrapins. The new Habitat Improvement Program (HIP) has made a huge difference for the terrapins.
Thanks to conservation-minded owners (who qualified for and received a valuable State of MA conservation land credit, as well as tax deductions), individual donors and several grant organizations, ECF closed on this wonderful land in January 2019, which will now be protected forever from development.
The Eastham Conservation Foundation is proud to announce that on January 31 it finalized the purchase of the 1.6-acre property on Sims Way, Eastham that borders the upper reaches of Rock Harbor salt marsh just off Dyer Prince Road.
