2003-2013 Wetland, Habitat and Open Space Efforts

The above list shows only grants awarded. Go to our GPRA page to see a map of wetland and habitat protection and restoration projects undertaken between 2003 and 2013 where the BBNEP provided some level of either financial or technical support, or were partners in some form. In general, the municipalities, area lands trusts, or the Buzzards Bay Coalition were the actual leads on many of these efforts.
