VOLUNTEERS NEEDED - WEAR YOUR WADERS TO WAREHAM AND SHOW CITIZENS
A VOTE FOR RED BROOK'S FUTURE IS A VOTE FOR THE TOWN'S FUTURE!
Trout Unlimited at the chapter, council and national level is opposing a proposed zoning change in Wareham, Massachusetts that will harm an environmentally sensitive drinking-water aquifer and severely threaten or possibly eliminate a population of Sea Run, or “Salter” Brook Trout in nearby Red Brook, whose headwaters flow out of the same aquifer.
Urgent action is needed to fight the creation of a 963-acre “Hospitality, Recreation and Entertainment District” on undeveloped parcels of pine barren habitat which protect Red Brook’s headwaters before a town meeting vote on the rezoning scheduled for April 10.
We are asking TU members from across Massachusetts who care about Red Brook and the future of Salter Brook Trout to stand up and join us by wearing your waders and urging Wareham residents to vote No. Working with a coalition of partners, we will be staging events at public locations such as the post offices and town hall and will provide location details, placards and more information in the coming weeks.
If you can't participate in person, please consider making a donation to help us pay for placards, posters, newspaper advertisements and more in our campaign to protect Red Brook and Salter Brook Trout. Donate to the fundraiser below.
