Friends of Herring River

Mission: To inspire and accelerate restoration of estuaries and ecosystems for the benefit of nature and all people. 

We are now 15 years young, incorporated as a 501c3 nonprofit organization to serve as an essential partner to initiate and support
the Herring River Restoration Project (HRRP) on Outer Cape Cod (Massachusetts).

HRRP aims to restore nearly 1,000 acres of degraded saltmarsh and coastal habitat. Our skilled team and volunteers ensure HRRP stays on track by securing grant funds and permits, managing contracts, monitoring rare species, running events to keep the public informed, and so much more!
