Restore. Protect. Give Back.

Save Popponesset Bay 2016 from Tom Chartrand/Shoreline Digital on Vimeo.

It was quite a night!

Save Popponesset Bay and nearly 200 friends and neighbors attended the annual Summer Kickoff Event on July 11 at the Cabana Club. We had a chance to meet new neighbors, connect with old friends and enjoy delicious food and beverages.The sounds of It’s a ‘J’ Thing coupled with the beautiful Cabana Club venue made for a perfect evening.

This event is special as friends from Popponesset, Bright Coves, Popponesset Island and Summer Sea all gather to enjoy the evening but also celebrate the success of the past five years. In that time, SPB has made great strides to re-build the Popponesset Spit, build a stronger alliance with Mass Audubon, collaborate with the Town of Mashpee, and live up to our mission statement to protect the Spit and help maintain the waterways in and around Popponesset Bay.


Winter 2019 sand and grass work completed on the Spit:

Our winter project for this phase of the Spit re-construction was completed last month.  We trucked in 10,000 cubic yards of sand, 8,500 for the eastern side closest to Audubon’s land and 1,500 to repair damage on the western side at the foot of Popponesset Island. We also had grass planted on the eastern side to anchor the sand. The resiliency of the Spit has been improved dramatically, especially along the middle section where it was extremely vulnerable.

They feature not only the great progress we have made for our region, but also the unique partnership that made it happen!


Regulators Warn Visitors: Dogs Put Popponesset Spit Access at Risk

The Popponesset Spit is an endangered species habitat. Therefore, dogs and pets are not allowed on the Spit from April 1 through Labor Day. We have been warned by the Department of Fish and Wildlife about dogs on the Spit. Failure to comply can result in severe actions to protect the endangered species who populate the Spit during the spring summer season.
