Friends of Bass River is a group of faithful private citizens dedicated to the guardianship of the ponds, coves and sub-basins of the Bass River Estuarine System. Our mission, through monitoring, vigilance and direct management, is to help preserve and protect Bass River’s delicate ecosystem. As one of the largest and most beautiful waterways on Cape Cod, the Bass River is under an increased danger from elevated nitrogen levels that, if allowed to continue unabated, will further damage and may even permanently alter coastal life as we now know it.
Public education, awareness and involvement are critical to saving our river. With proper management, current nitrogen trends can be reversed. It is our duty to protect and preserve the invaluable Bass River Estuarine System.
