Since 1998, the Great Pond Foundation has focused on enhancing the health of the Edgartown Great Pond through science, research, and education – in partnership with the town of Edgartown and other concerned organizations.


Our goals are to educate the public to the pond’s value and condition, and support the town of Edgartown in enhancing its recreational and ecological features.
