Mission Statement

The Straits Pond Watershed Association’s mission is to provide community input to governmental committees and agencies, and to facilitate efforts to maintain and improve the environmental quality and the beauty of Straits Pond.

A 100-acre coastal salt pond in Hull, part of the Weir River Estuary, Straits Pond is a state-designated area of critical environmental concern.

The purpose of this website is to raise awareness about the environmental challenges facing the Straits Pond watershed, the restoration of Straits Pond, and how we can be better stewards.
