Thanks to Milt Williamson of West Falmouth for this beautiful picture of Crocker Pond. Historic Bourne Farm is located on over 49 acres of fields, trails and woodlands that overlook Crocker Pond in West Falmouth.

When we asked Milt about what he loves most about the pond he said, “Crocker Pond is the constant southern background whenever visiting Bourne Farm in West Falmouth. It’s considerably lower in elevation than most of the farm land particularly around the farm house and barn. Therefore you are always looking down over open fields and stone walls. Each season presents surprises of landscape viewing depending on the current weather. Ice and snow and fall foliage are my favorites.”

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.
