Take Action!


• Sign our Petition for a Moratorium on State Subsidies for Ground-Mounted Solar here.

Sign the petition to protect Pine Hills in Plymouth, a large, mostly undeveloped hilly and forested area. The Pine Hills area contains one of the last remaining coastal hills between North Carolina and Acadia. Don’t let this area go to development to be flattened or strip-mined. Conserving this space would protect globally rare Coastal Pine Barrens, protect open space for wildlife, climate, and biodiversity and protect a likely site of Indigenous artifacts similar to the ceremonial landscapes of neighboring Cleft Park with cultural and historic features.

• Print out our FAQ, Moratorium Petition, and Petition Fact Sheet to educate your friends, family, co-workers or canvas door to door.

• Volunteer! We have plenty of volunteer opportunities. You can:

  • Write opinion pieces for newspapers
  • Advocate for our cause on social media
  • Make phone calls
  • Hold signs
  • Come to our standouts
  • Take pictures for our cause
  • Canvas from door to door
  • Come to our meetings with legislators, help us call and write to them

If you are interested in volunteering, please email environmentwatchsoutheasternma@gmail.com

• Call local representatives and boards to voice your opinion of strip mining and solar operations in Plymouth County.

Ask Wareham Selectmen to give us a chance to save 190 acres of Pine Barrens forest from earth removal and solar utilities.

Please contact the Wareham Board of Selectmen. Feel free to use this pre-formed letter which can be sent in a few minutes or write your own. Customized letters have a bigger impact.

People across our region are standing up against cutting down forests for big solar projects like the ones in Wareham.

Now developers are proposing 1,400 more acres of land based industrial solar in Wareham.

This zoning change is one step in the right direction. But it won’t protect our forests and water enough. Other towns have better zoning laws.

Vote yes on Article 17 to take the important first step for a better Wareham. Our community, environment and climate deserves better.

Senate Bill S.2596 – an Act Allowing Municipalities to Reasonably Regulate Solar Siting has been sponsored by Senator Joanne Comerford. This bill would ensure that communities have more power to regulate solar projects and make decisions based on what’s best for them.
