Rick Otis, President of the Citizens for the Protection of Waquoit Bay, FDTC May Monthly Meeting
May 17 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Rick Otis, President of the Citizens for the Protection of Waquoit Bay, is our featured speaker at the FDTC May 17 monthly meeting. He will speak on the Massachusetts Department of Environment’s proposed solutions to restore Waquoit Bay.
The Citizens for the Protection of Waquoit Bay was founded in 1981 to prevent the development of Washburn Island and establish it as a State Park. It lobbied successfully for the protection of South Cape Beach and the founding of the Waquoit Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve. In 1987, under the leadership of Matt Patrick and Donald Bourne, CPWB assembled a group of civic and environmental organizations known as the Quashnet Coalition to convince the Commonwealth to acquire the Quashnet River Valley, where a large condominium project had been proposed. Later under Patrick and Bourne, CPWB became one of the founding sponsors of the Coalition for the Cape Cod Commission, the land use authority that has made Cape Cod a better place to live.
