Thanks to Sanford Zevon for sending us these poetic images of sunsets, sunrises (and daytime photos too!) of Brewster’s Elbow Pond from May to November, 2021.

How can you not fall in love with ponds and want to protect them based on how beautiful they are?

Pond Stories are a collection of writings from Cape Codders and visitors who love the 1000 local ponds that dot the Cape. We hope this collection of stories, that are as much endearing as they are environmentally aware, will awaken your inner environmentalist to think deeper about our human impacts to these unique bodies of water. Check out these valuable resources to learn more about the current challenges Cape Cod ponds are facing and how you can be a better pond steward in your town.
