Preserving the very nature of Cape Cod for over 50 years
A carbon-neutral Cape Cod where waters are restored and protected, natural landscapes and wildlife habitat are preserved, and where growth respects the character of town centers and rural lands.
The high quality of life we enjoy on Cape Cod depends on a healthy environment, with safe drinking water, clean ponds and bays, unspoiled open areas and vibrant mixed use village centers.

We need the tonic of wildness…At the same time that we are earnest to explore and learn all things, we require that all things be mysterious and unexplorable, that land and sea be indefinitely wild, unsurveyed and unfathomed by us because unfathomable. We can never have enough of nature.
