Open Space Projects in Falmouth

The CPFund has contributed $2 million to Open Space projects since 2005.

The CPFund has contributed to the purchase and preservation of critical open spaces serving as watersheds, like those for Oyster Pond and Waquoit Bay (Calebs Pond) and corridors for wildlife and recreation for all ages (Bartolomei Parcel, Kelly Woodland). It has also supported improvements at beaches and the evaluation and development of management plans for Falmouth’s most valuable natural resources, its marshes, estuaries, and harbors.
