We are a network of groups and individuals taking action to ensure a livable future in our region.
That means clean water, healthy ecosystems and forests that support the world-class biodiversity at our doorsteps. We are advocates for accountability and transparency as a route to raise awareness and educate the community about what it takes to make change happen.
“Also known as Pitch Pine/Scrub Oak Barrens, pine barrens are a globally rare habitat type, with Massachusetts supporting the third largest example in the world(behind New Jersey and Long Island). Protection of barrens habitat will also help protect the recharge area for the largest groundwater reserve in the state [of Massachusetts]. “
Massachusetts has one of the most unique forested ecosystems here at home and is the 8th most forested state in the United States! However, deforestation in Massachusetts for development has been increasing at an alarming rate! Species have already gone extinct in Massachusetts and the rapid pace of development causing more loss.
We must STOP the Destruction of the unique Pine Barrens forests for Ground-mounting Solar and Strip Mining Operations.
Here in Southeastern Massachusetts, including Carver, Wareham, and Plymouth, the unique Pine Barrens ecoregion is being clear-cut for industrial solar development and strip mining operations!
