What You Can Do


The Edgartown Great Pond is an important estuary on the island of Martha’s Vineyard. This natural resource provides recreational use, habitat for wildlife, and, income to the local economy. However, the Pond is affected by the people who reside around it and within the watershed. We all must do our part to make sure we understand how our actions affect the Edgartown Great Pond and protect it however we can.

We all want to protect the water resources of our Island home, but often we do not know what we can do. The Island Blue Pages will give you some ideas. It begins with the big picture — everything you need to know about the Vineyard’s water cycles — and then identifies actions that each of us can take to safeguard our Island’s waters. Many of the solutions are simple; many will even save you money. Join us to protect the health of our waters.
