As a grassroots organization, membership is the heart of APCC. The support of our members allows us to change the pattern of development on Cape Cod so that we can better protect wildlife habitat, critical water resources, natural landscapes, water quality, fish runs and so much more.
"APCC had the pleasure of hosting Dr. John Holdren to provide a science-based, and very sobering, talk on climate change last week. Dr. Holdren’s presentation slides can be found on our website and I encourage you to spend the time they warrant to read and digest them."
On a typical June evening at Santuit Pond in Mashpee, fishermen like Ted Kingsley can be found perched by the shore, or wading through the water, looking for bass. “The [deepest] I've been -- up to my ankles in it, maybe,” Kingsley said. He said he won’t go in past his ankles, though; something about the water isn’t right.
Because the Cape's environment IS its economy.
