  • 1. 2012 ANNUAL REPORT2012 ANNUAL REPORT
  • 2. The Buzzards Bay Coalition’s 25th year found us right where our founders would have wanted us: deep in thetrenches working to protect and restore this ever-magical but increasingly threatened Bay and its watershed.And thanks to the outstanding support of you – our members and friends – we think they’d be proud of thescale and depth of the Coalition’s programs and accomplishments. While the challenges facing Buzzards Bay– most importantly nitrogen pollution – are increasing, one critical fact remains: the threats to our region’swaters and lands are primarily local. They are within our power to ignore or tackle, to accept or change. Thatfact more than any other keeps us excited and empowered in our work. It’s also at the core of the Coalition’sstrength and effectiveness.It took generations to create the land development patterns that have led to theoverpollution of our Bay and its harbors with nitrogen. And the fix – changes in towninfrastructure, financing, and improved planning – will take another generation for Baycommunities to fully absorb.But like the global threat of climate change, ignoring our local nitrogen problem and avoidingthe hard work ahead will only make restoration more difficult, more expensive and potentiallyless successful.So the time to act is now. And that is what the Coalition is doing through legalaction, advocacy with public officials, and pushing for quicker delivery ofsound science and concrete cleanup. Our major federal lawsuits against the U.S. EPA areforcing officials to deal with septic systems on Cape Cod; our legal challenge and eventualSettlement Agreement with the town of Falmouth and the Massachusetts Department ofEnvironmental Protection put West Falmouth Harbor, after more than a decade of pressure,on a clear path to recovery; and our watchdogging of long-delayed Massachusetts EstuariesProject reports for harbors from Dartmouth to Wareham all reflect the significantinvestments we’ve made in aggressive advocacy this past year.But legal advocacy is only one facet of our strategy. Proactive land conservation to acquire the watershed’smost important forests and wetlands is critical – both for preserving natural, nitrogen-absorbing landscapesand for maintaining healthy river and coastal ecosystems for wildlife and fish. To that end, we permanentlypreserved another 470 acres in 2012. These lands – clustered around the Bay’s most important rivers – bringthe total amount of land we’ve saved to 6,250 acres since we began this program in 1998.2012 also saw dramatic growth in our work to inspire, excite and engage many, many more people in Bayprotection. Saving Buzzards Bay is multigenerational work and the victories of today will need watchdoggingtomorrow. Joining us in this effort are the more than 4,000 area youth who participated in our year-roundfield education programs, the 1,000 people who came out for the Buzzards Bay Film Festival, and thehundreds that flexed their muscle and passion in outdoor events like our Swim and Watershed Ride thatcelebrate everyone’s right to a clean environment.The pages of this Annual Report provide an all-too-short glimpse into the daily work of our talented staff,dedicated Board and tireless volunteers. But the most important players are you – our growing familyof members and supporters – who make it all possible. You continue to amaze us with your generosity,your enthusiastic impatience for more action, and most importantly, your vision for the future of our localenvironment. We’re excited for the work ahead. Thank you! Mark Rasmussen President/Buzzards BaykeeperFROM THE PRESIDENT AND CHAIRTom GidwitzChair, Board of Directors
  • 3. 2012 Annual Report | 1Issue Highlight:Why is New Bedford Harborgetting one of the worstcleanups in America?No corner of Buzzards Bay has suffered more damage than New BedfordHarbor. It is the Bay’s largest urban waterway, home to more than onehundred thousand residents and the United States’ richest commercialfishing port. It is also heavily contaminated with cancer-causing toxinscalled PCBs, ongoing raw sewage discharges, and too much nitrogen.For decades, toxic pollution in particular has deprived the New Bedfordcommunity of its greatest natural asset: its Harbor. Now, after years ofwaiting, New Bedford Harbor still isn’t getting the cleanup it deserves.The Coalition has always been an active advocate for the Harbor, but we significantly ramped up our effortsin October 2012, when the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced an inadequate $366million settlement with AVX Corporation, the largest company responsible for the Harbor’s PCB pollution.Although this figure sounds like a lot of money, the settlement is a bad deal for the New Bedford community.Under the settlement – a fixed amount that allows AVX to walk away forever – theEPA will be locked into cleanup choices that put cost savings ahead of harbor healthand the public good. New Bedford Harbor is slated to receive one of the worstPCB cleanups of its kind in America, with up to fifty times more toxic pollution leftbehind than in similar waterway cleanups.In response, we mobilized more than a dozen elected officials and over 2,000 community members to joinour call for a full cleanup of New Bedford Harbor. The settlement comes at a critical point for the Harbor,where the tide is turning for a long-neglected waterway. Along its shores, developers are transforming oldfactories into new waterfront loft homes. Abandoned spaces are being re-imagined as public parks wherefamilies can enjoy nature, right in their own urban backyard. Active citizens row the Harbor’s waters, takingback a waterway that residents have been robbed of for far too long.The New Bedford community deserves a Harbor cleanup that will protect the health of its residents, providea safe home for fish and wildlife, and preserve its coastal heritage for future generations. That vision for thefuture can – and will – be a reality if we fight today for a full cleanup.Get the latest on the Coalition’s New Bedford Harbor efforts by visitingwww.savebuzzardsbay.org/NewBedfordHarbor.Under the EPA’s cleanup plan, these signsmay never come down.

  • 5. 2012 Annual Report | 3The fact that rusty tide is becoming routine andwidespread is more evidence of the serious threat thatnitrogen pollution poses in Buzzards Bay. The severityof the problem is well-documented by over twentyyears of comprehensive water quality data collectedthrough our Baywatchers program. The breadth anddepth of that program earned it a 2012 EnvironmentalMerit Award from the U.S. Environmental ProtectionAgency (EPA). And it is helping us begin to turn thetide on nitrogen as public awareness and concernabout the issue grows.Baywatchers data laid the foundation for a majorvictory for clean water in West Falmouth. For overa decade, concerned citizens have watched theirharbor become choked with algae. Too muchnitrogen was flowing into the harbor, and thebiggest culprit was the Falmouth WastewaterTreatment Plant. In July, the Coalition initiatedlegal action and ultimately reached a landmarklegal settlement with the town of Falmouth andthe Massachusetts Department of EnvironmentalProtection (MassDEP) to limit the amount ofnitrogen that reaches the Harbor.The victory in West Falmouth Harbor was possiblebecause of a completed cleanup study thatoutlined the amount of nitrogen a healthy harborcan handle. Many other Buzzards Bay harbors andOn July 30, 2012, as the R/V Baykeeper® cruised towards its monitoring station in Mark’s Covein Wareham, Coalition Senior Attorney Korrin Petersen noticed the water taking on a murky,rusty color. She snapped a picture and shared it with the Coalition’s science staff, who agreedthat this was likely the season’s first reported sighting of “rusty tide”: an algae bloom causedby nitrogen pollution and warm water. 2012 was the eighth straight year that rusty tide wasreported in Buzzards Bay, but the first time it was seen as early as July. By the end of thesummer, rusty tide sightings were reported in towns from Dartmouth to Falmouth, coveringmore of the Bay than ever before.coves are not so lucky. Five of the Bay’s estuaries – theWareham River, Slocums River, Apponagansett Bay,New Bedford Harbor, and Nasketucket Bay – havebeen waiting as long as nine years for final nitrogenpollution studies to be released by the MassachusettsEstuaries Project at UMass Dartmouth. In May, theCoalition reached an agreement with MassDEP andUMass Dartmouth to expedite final reports for thosecritical estuaries within one year.As we work harbor by harbor, we also continue topress for regional solutions to clean up coastalwaters. Our lawsuits against the EPA to update aregional action plan for cleaning up Cape Cod’s watersmoved into active litigation, as did a companion suitdemanding the agency take action to reduce septicsystem pollution.Although septic systems are the largest source ofnitrogen pollution Bay-wide, the Buzzards Baywatershed is also the country’s largest coastalcranberry producer. We have partnered with theCape Cod Cranberry Growers Association, theMarine Biological Laboratory, the UMass CranberryExperiment Station and the town of Carver in animportant multi-year collaborative effort to researchthe impact of cranberry bogs on the Bay’s health.Lastly, we are carrying on with efforts to eliminatetoxic pollution from all corners of the Bay. We rampedup our fight for a full cleanup of PCBs in New BedfordHarbor (see page one) and told the U.S. Coast Guardthat its latest draft environmental assessment was“wholly insufficient” to protect the Bay from oil spills.Watch for more to come in 2013 on both of theseissues that never seem to go away.Baykeeper® AdvocacyWith over 200 monitoringsites on and around theBay, our Baywatchersprogram is the foundationof our work to restoreclean water.Coalition President Mark Rasmussenannounces the landmark legal settlementfor restoring West Falmouth Harbor.Printed with vegetable-based inks on process chlorine-free, recycled paper.

  • 7. 2012 Annual Report | 5In Mattapoisett, we worked with the MattapoisettLand Trust to permanently protect 300 acres of coastalforest, wetlands, and streams that flow into Pine IslandPond and outer Mattapoisett Harbor. In Dartmouth,the Coalition partnered with the Lloyd Center for theEnvironment and the Dartmouth Natural ResourcesTrust to protect 26 stunningly scenic acres along theLittle River Estuary. And in preparation for what isthe largest coastal land protection project underway inMassachusetts, the Coalition received a $2,000,000grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture towardsthe protection of 400 acres of land along NasketucketBay. In addition to protecting coastal land, the Coalitionalso helped residents in Falmouth advance a project torestore three salt ponds that have been overtaken byinvasive species. This project will restore habitat andprotect water quality on the Cape Cod coast.Equally important to protecting coastal lands is theprotection of the forests, wetlands and stream buffersalong the Bay’s tributaries. Along the Weweantic,Acushnet and Mattapoisett rivers in 2012, we protectedland, advanced restoration and invited the public toexplore these special places by opening three RiverReserves. In Wareham, two major land protectionprojects formed the cornerstone of the WeweanticRiver Reserve. The Coalition protected 10 acres alongthe lower Weweantic, where the river meets the saltywaters of Buzzards Bay. Further upstream in WestWareham, the Coalition, along with the Wareham LandTrust and the town of Wareham, protected 20 acres ofpine and oak forest along the river.Our Acushnet River Reserve, combining landconservation and river restoration along this urbanwaterway, more than doubled in size with 50additional acres. This includes the 46 acre LaPalmeFarm featuring newly-opened public trails leadingto the river. In April, the restoration project justClean water doesn’t just happen. The technology to produce clean water with filters, pumps, andchemicals can easily cost millions. Or you can do it the old-fashioned way: with a healthy, vibrantwatershed that provides our communities with clean water for drinking, swimming and fishing.Protecting watersheds means protecting forests that absorb rainwater and recharge groundwateraquifers, wetlands that filter pollutants and reduce flooding, and plants and animals along ourrivers and coastlines that naturally consume the nitrogen that fouls the Bay. In 2012, to ensureclean water for our communities and for Buzzards Bay, the Coalition permanently preserved 470acres of land and advanced projects to restore rivers and wetlands across the region.downstream at the Acushnet Sawmill received $1.2million in funding from the New Bedford HarborTrustee Council. With that funding, the Coalitionhired ecological restoration scientists and engineersto manage the project, which will remove acres ofpavement, restore wetlands, reestablish riverbankvegetation, and create public walking trails and a canoelaunch. The Sawmill will open to the public in 2014.In February, the Coalition added another 63 acres toour Mattapoisett River Reserve, expanding to over 350acres of lush forests, freshwater wetlands – including aretired cranberry bog – and walking trails for the publicto enjoy. Conserving this land protects a drinking wateraquifer serving five Bay communities and provides anopportunity to restore a more natural flow of water intothe Mattapoisett River and Buzzards Bay.Watershed ProtectionPalmer’s IslandMarsh IslandA picturesque section of the Weweantic River estuarythat was conserved in 2012.

  • 9. 2012 Annual Report | 7The spirit of appreciation and enjoyment of BuzzardsBay was the theme of 2012 as the Coalition celebratedour 25th anniversary. There is no better way to enjoythe Bay than getting outside, and in January, welaunched monthly Bay Adventures for all ages led byCoalition staff. This included hikes that explored ourriver reserves on the Weweantic, Mattapoisett, andAcushnet rivers and conservation lands in Bourne,Acushnet, and Wareham. Other adventures included atug boat tour of New Bedford Harbor and two trips todiscover the remote beauty of Penikese Island.To raise awareness of Buzzards Bay’s health, locallegend Richard Wheeler kayaked the Bay’s entireshoreline – from the Head of the Westport River toPenikese Island – in May and June. Along the way,the 81-year-old Wareham resident met with over 500schoolchildren and adults to share tales of the Bay’sbeauty and importance. As he travelled, he carried agift from each community to the next as a symbol ofhow the Bay connects us all.The first-ever Buzzards Bay Film Festival broughttogether professional filmmakers and everydaycitizens for a year-long celebration of Buzzards Bay.“Dear Buzzards Bay, thank you for letting boats float, letting fish swim, and letting us swimin you. I will pick up all the trash in you.” This was the message delivered by a nine-year-oldNew Bedford girl who attends afterschool at the YMCA. Like her peers, she initially knew verylittle about Buzzards Bay, but after five weeks exploring the Bay and its watershed with theCoalition, her appreciation – and her sense of responsibility – speaks for itself.The festival included the popular Cellphone Cinemacontest, in which residents submitted short videosabout the Bay they love all summer long. In November,the festival culminated with a three-day event thatdrew more than 1,000 people to screenings inFalmouth and New Bedford.To close the year’s celebrations, we unveiled a newBay-inspired public art installation at our BuzzardsBay Center in New Bedford. Designed by localartist John Magnan, Habitat is seven stainless steelsculptures that emulate eelgrass, one of the Bay’smost important – and nitrogen-threatened – habitats.The sculptures are an inspiring addition to ourheadquarters which, along with our Woods HoleCenter, welcomed over 3,000 visitors last year.We also continued to serve the region’s decisionmakers in government, business, and the non-profitsector with workshops focused on restoring the Bay’snatural resources. More than 50 participants dug intothe details of restoring rivers and wetlands, hearingfrom experts and visiting restoration projects inAcushnet, Fairhaven, Falmouth and Wareham.To develop the next generation of Bay stewards, weengaged more youth than ever before in hands-on,field-based exploration programs throughout theBay and watershed. In partnership with schools andcommunity groups from every community in thewatershed, we connected over 4,000 youth with theirlocal environment. Through our programs,children explored beaches in Falmouth,marshes in Wareham, forests in Mattapoisett,and went quahogging in New Bedford’s ClarksCove. We also offered our first week-longBay stewardship camp in partnership withYMCA Southcoast, where campers exploredthe Mattapoisett River from its headwaters toBuzzards Bay.EDUCATION AND PUBLIC ENGAGEMENTThe new plaza in front of theBuzzards Bay Center in New Bedfordincluding the sculpture “Habitat.”Our 2012 Decision Makers Workshops focusedon restoring the Bay’s natural resources.

More important, with expandedinfrastructure and endowment as well as new programs we have greatly increased the resources webring to bear to tackle the challenges that face Buzzards Bay.As expected following a capital campaign, overall donations decreased this year by about30%, but support for operations continued a growth trend, with membership and annualfund income increasing by more than 35% from the prior year. The annual Buzzards BaySwim and Watershed Ride events also generated 70% more revenue than the prior year,with the important added benefit of engaging hundreds of people with their irreplaceableBay and watershed. Expenses for the year increased as well, a reflection of growth in ourwork to protect and restore Buzzards Bay.The Coalition has a very capable and dedicated staff and most generous supporters. This is a verydynamic and exciting organization. I am very confident we will continue to be a strong force for theBay’s preservation.Copies of audited financial statements are available upon request.Samuel P.M. GrayTreasurerThe FY2012 and FY2011 Financial Statements were audited by the firm of Hodgson, Pratt & Associates PC, New Bedford, MA.
