This dusk walk, led by Paskamansett Bird Club President and Mass Audubon's South Coast Sanctuaries Property Manager Lauren Miller-Donnelly, will begin at 6:30 pm and end around 8 pm. This walk is free and open to the public. Wear comfortable sturdy shoes and be prepared for moderate walking over uneven terrain. See our Facebook page for last minute cancellations due to weather. We hope to see you there!
Join WLCT and the Alaskan sustainable fisheries co-op, Pride of Bristol Bay, on Saturday, October 22 at the Westport Town Farm (830 Drift Road) for a wildly flavorful sockeye salmon cookout from noon to 2 PM! Plates are $20.00 per person but the view is free! We have partnered with Pride of Bristol Bay to bring Westport--and the entire Southcoast--premium and affordable sockeye salmon this season. Pride of Bristol Bay has begun accepting online reservations for its Buying Club, delivering sustainable Bristol Bay sockeye salmon directly to consumers and chefs in communities across the country, including Boise, Idaho; Jackson, Wyo; Burlington, Vt; Brunswick, Maine; and, for the first time ever, Westport, Mass. The order deadline is October 8. The company, founded by fisherman Matt Luck in 2015, donates 10 percent of all profits to Trout Unlimited’s Save Bristol Bay program. The Save Bristol Bay program is aimed at protecting Bristol Bay, Alaska’s pristine watershed and wild salmon populations from the Pebble Mine; a proposed open-pit mine in the headwaters of Bristol Bay’s most productive salmon rivers. This unique partnership allows consumers in the lower 48 to buy wild Alaska sockeye salmon direct from fishermen, while also helping protect the world’s largest sockeye salmon fishery. We hope to see you there!
