  • 2011 ANNUAL REPORT You’re Invited 24th Annual Meeting May 10, 2012 – Kittansett Club, Marion Details inside cover
  • FROM THE PRESIDENT AND CHAIR 2012 marks the 25th anniversary of the founding of the Buzzards Bay Coalition by a dedicated group of citizens spanning the Bay from Woods Hole to Westport. They were brought together by the loss of shellfish beds to contamination from sewage, by the ongoing threat of oil spills from barges, by toxic pollution in need of cleanup in New Bedford and at Otis, and by the spread of sprawl development and loss of open space throughout the watershed. In 1987, these problems were reaching an all-time peak and the Bay’s citizens came together to create a new future for our region’s environment. They believed that local citizens from all watershed towns should work together; for they had the most to gain from the Bay’s preservation and the most to lose by its degra- dation. They created the Buzzards Bay Coalition to carry forth that mission. So a sign was hung on a donated cadets room at Mass Maritime, a phone line estab- lished, and from the keys of a typewriter, the Bay Coalition began its work to build a citizens movement to clean up the Bay. The accomplishments in this 2011 Annual Report speak volumes about how far we’ve come as an organization and how the challenges facing our Bay have changed in the past quarter century. But one thing that remains as true today as it was in 1987 is that people are the engine of the Buzzards Bay Coalition. Our members and generous sup- porters who volunteer their time, money, and ideas are at the heart of our efforts and make our work possible. And, as our 2011 State of Buzzards Bay report documents, the challenges ahead are daunting. The continuing spread of nitrogen pollution is affecting every corner of our region and altering the Bay ecosystem in fundamental ways. Caused by inadequate wastewater treatment and poorly-planned development throughout the watershed, it is the driving force behind nearly all the Bay Coalition’s advocacy, education and land protection efforts today and our efforts are already yielding results. It is our pleasure, then, to present the challenges and victories highlighted in this Annual Report. We hope you are proud of what we are accomplishing together and that you’ll encourage your friends and family to join us. Thank you! Sincerely, Mark Rasmussen Tom Gidwitz President/Buzzards Baykeeper Chair, Board of DirectorsThe Buzzards Bay Coalition invites you to our: of our accomplishments in 2011, election of Board24th Annual Meeting Members, and presentation of the 2012 Buzzards Bay Guardian Awards.at the Kittansett Club – 11 Point Road Marion, MAMay 10, 2012 The meeting will also include a talk and discussion with Dr. Joe Costa, Executive Director of the Buzzards Bay National Estuary Program since 1989,The evening will begin with a Reception for who will discuss how the effort to Save Buzzards BayMembers at 6pm, followed by the Annual Meeting has changed over the past 25 years and the impactat 7pm.

  • 2011 STATE OF 2011 STATE OF BuzzARDS BAYBuzzARDS BAY nitrogennitrogen Pollution Prevents Pollution Blocking Progress 45 Out OF 100Improvement in 2011State of the Bay ScoreEvery four years the Buzzards Bay Coalition leads a comprehensive review of the health of Buzzards Bay. Developed in collabo-ration with scientists and land use experts and using the best available current and historical information, the State of BuzzardsBay report provides an important tool to assess the effectiveness of Bay cleanup and protection efforts and to guide our work incoming years.In 2011 the State of the Bay Score, a summation of nine different indicators of the health of the Bay and watershed, did not changesince the last report in 2007. While that fact may suggest stability, the State of Buzzards Bay is in fact changing dramatically – inboth positive and negative ways.the greatest gains in the health of Buzzards Bay in recent years have been in the slow cleanup of“Old Pollution” sources – like bacteria and toxics - and the impact of that ongoing success story isevident in the State of the Bay report. But these improvements, while enough to prevent the overallState of the Bay score from falling this year, were not enough to overcome the expanding sources of“new Pollution” – nitrogen - and its impacts.Nitrogen discharges, from poorly-planned development, are worsening water quality and degrading habitat in all corners ofBuzzards Bay. The consequence is a slow suffocation of the Bay we all cherish and the significant declines in the Nitrogen,Eelgrass and Bay Scallop scores in the report are all related to this problem.We are very proud to have played a part - along with dedicated town officials, state and federal agencies, and citizens - in theongoing cleanup of the “Old Pollution.” However, what the 2011 State of Buzzards Bay report makes clear is that the “New Pol-lution” has the potential to undo many of these achievements. For this reason, as you will see in the pages that follow, our worktoday is focused on the greater challenge ahead – managing wastewater and watershed development while increasing commu-nity stewardship in order to reduce nitrogen pollution.To learn more and download a copy of the full report go to www.savebuzzardsbay.org/StateOfBuzzardsBay 2003 2007 2011 POllutIOn Nitrogen 59 56 53 Bacteria 59 57 62 Toxics 45 47 52 WAteRSheD heAlth Improvement Forests Decline 76 75 79 Streams 68 67 71 Wetlands No Significant 60 60 60 lIvIng ReSOuRCeS Change Eelgrass 34 25 23 Bay Scallops 12 10 3 River Herring 5 1 1 OveRAll SCORe 48 45 45 2011 ANNUAL RepORT | 1
  • Baykeeper® AdvocacySolid science and comprehensive advocacy are core elements of the Bay Coalition’s efforts torestore clean water throughout the Bay and watershed. In 2011, with two decades of bay healthdata demonstrating the growing threat, we continued to attack nitrogen pollution at all levelsand across the watershed while securing important protections against oil spills and serving as awatchdog for toxic waste clean up.

  • Watershed ProtectionWhile nature endowed the Buzzards Bay watershed with all the forests, wetlands, and streambuffers it needs to keep its waters healthy, it is up to us – the Bay Coalition and its partners – toprotect the watershed lands that are most important to Bay health and restore the natural areasthat have been degraded from human action. In 2011, the Bay Coalition made huge gains towardsprotecting drinking water in the Mattapoisett River Valley, advanced a comprehensive land pro-tection and restoration vision for New Bedford Harbor, and continued our restoration and stew-ardship work across the region. In 2011, the Bay Coalition protected 200 acres along No corner of Buzzards Bay has suffered more damage Tripps Mill Brook, a tributary of the Mattapoisett River than New Bedford Harbor but in 2011 the tide is turning Valley, an important achievement for several reasons. for the estuary.

  • EDUCATION AND PUBLIC ENGAGEMENTAll our work to Save Buzzards Bay can only be sustained by an engaged and active citizenryserving as stewards of the region’s environment. In 2011, our work to educate and engage thecommunity expanded across the watershed - through our learning centers, field-based educa-tion programs, and decision-maker workshops - reaching over 3,500 people in the first year. In 2010 we celebrated the opening of the award-winning It wasn’t just kids who were discovering Buzzards Bay Buzzards Bay Center including the dynamic Richard C. in a new way during 2011.

Our innovative vision for connecting the region’s youth with Buzzards Bay was recognized when the Bay Coalition was awarded a highly com- petitive grant from the Environmental Protection Agency to provide after- school and summer programs to 6000 youth from New Bedford to Wareham in the next two years. We got right to work last fall working with 75 youth in afterschool programs in New Bedford, Mattapoisett, and Wareham.

  • TREASURER’S REPORT FISCAL YEAR 2011 (JULY 1, 2010-JUNE 20, 2011) The Buzzards Bay Coalition enjoyed another year of financial stability and growth due to the consistent and very generous support of its membership and supporters. At June 30, 2011, the Coalition’s net as- sets had increased $1.9 million to close the fiscal year at $8.8 million. Donations were up more than 20% from the prior year, benefiting from the surge in capital campaign gifts as we neared the close of the Campaign for Buzzards Bay. We also experienced a strong increase in our event activities, with a 45% increase in gross revenues from our Ride and Swim fundraising events. We were pleased to see that membership revenue remained fairly consistent with the high- er levels set the prior year as a result of the membership challenge and pursuant growth. As expected, our reliance on government grants continues to decline as we strive to build our financial strength on non-government income sources. The Coalition is a very exciting organization served by a most capable and dedicated staff and generous supporters. While we face many challenges in protecting the Bay we love, I am very confident we will continue to be a strong force for its preservation.
