The 300 Committee
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
We are Celebrating our 30th Anniversary all year long!
Venture out with us!
Winter Wednesday Walks
Time: 12:30 – 2 pm
Location: see details below
Come out for some fresh air and a good walk on our beautiful & interesting conservation lands! Winter is an especially good time to see vistas that are obscured by foliage during other seasons. All walks are easy-paced and on well-cleared paths.
Driving rain or snow cancels. Please leave dogs at home.
Any questions? Please call the walk leaders ahead of time: Alex Lancaster 508-540-4619,
Molly Cornell 508-540-7652.

Winter Waterfowl Safari
Saturday, January 31, 2015
10am to noon
Join T3C birding enthusiast Molly Cornell on an adventure to see the wintering ducks, mergansers, geese and swans that are feeding -- and resting -- in the saltwater inlets that lace the shore of Vineyard Sound. Participants will also check out the Sound for loons, grebes, rafts of sea ducks and any other waterfowl that are out there!
Meet at the parking lot at the entrance to Falmouth Harbor on the east side (near Falmouth Yacht Club). The group will carpool from there to several birding hot spots, depending on where the water is open. No experience is necessary...beginning birders are welcome!
Be sure to dress for the weather, as it can be quite brisk! Bring water and a snack, a windbreaker and binoculars and/or 'scope if you have them. Driving rain, sleet or snow will cancel. Questions? Please phone Molly Cornell at 508-540-7652.
Directions: From the intersection of Main Street and Davis Straits in Falmouth (@ Friendly's Restaurant) take Falmouth Heights Road (which becomes Grand Avenue) south to the water. Turn right, go past the yacht club, and park along the harbor (across from the motel.)
Annual Stewards' Meeting
Monday, February 2nd* from 7 to 9pm
Falmouth Rec Center (790 Main Street, Falmouth)
This event will be a celebration of all the hard work volunteer stewards do for The 300 Committee. A brief presentation will feature some of the exciting projects the 300 Committee will be working on as part of our 30th anniversary celebrations. We will also highlight a few of the successful habitat restoration and wildlife projects from the past year. You don't have to be a Steward to attend...everyone is welcome!
(* postponed due to snow from Wed., Jan. 28th)
We hope you will join us for our Annual Speaker Series!
Beginning in early February, and continuing once a month into May, T3C and Salt Pond Areas Bird Sanctuaries join forces again to bring you a series of exciting and informative talks on a range of environmental topics. This year's lineup of talks includes presentations on deer ticks, evidence of climate change in Falmouth's Salt Pond, endangered wildlife in New England and water quality on the Cape.
Presentations will be held Thursday evenings at 7:00 at the Falmouth Historical Society's Cultural Center (aka the Hallett Barn). They are a great way to get out during a few winter and early spring evenings. We are sure you will learn something new!
