The fourth annual Brewster Conservation Day was better than ever! Close to 1,000 people of all ages came to Drummer Boy Park to experience over 40 exhibits, hear featured presentations, and participate in activities all about the value of conservation. They practiced how to be water friendly consumers at the, Brewster Ponds Coalition game, “Be a Pond Hero”. They asked experts about how septic systems work, learned about composting and soil testing from the Cooperative Extension Service and the Chamber of Commerce and saw the value of planting native plants. Kids big and small, made bird feeders, explored the full size fish weir, toured the windmill and viewed the Blacksmith demonstration at the Brewster Historic Society’s historic village,
Thanks to all organizations for offering their engaging, educational exhibits. Thanks to the dozens of volunteers from the BCT land stewardship team, the Brewster Historical Society, the Brewster Flats, AmeriCorps Cape Cod, and the Eagle Scouts.
