Waquoit Bay Research Reserve to Celebrate 30 Years

EAST FALMOUTH – The Waquoit Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve is celebrating 30 years of research, education and stewardship next week.

The 30th Anniversary celebration is Tuesday, July 31 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the reserve’s visitor center on Route 28 in East Falmouth.

The evening kicks off with the art opening of works that will be up for bid during a silent auction. The en plein air pieces will be created earlier that day during a “quick paint.”

The works will be on exhibit for a week. The public will be able to make bids during that time.

Some of the proceeds will benefit the reserves’ programs.

A short presentation will be held at 6:30 p.m. highlighting the work of the reserve over the last 30 years supporting coastal communities, along with plans for the future.

An ice cream sundae social will follow the presentation.

The event will also include live music by the Falmouth Fiddlers.

The mission of the reserve is to promote science-based decision making that leads to healthy coastal ecosystems.

It protects about 3,000 acres in Falmouth and Mashpee.
