GREENLAND – Great Bay is an essential part of what makes living on the Seacoast unique, but pollution from increasing development threatens the estuary's ecosystem.

The Great Bay Stewards is dedicated to protecting the bay and a recent grant will assists its efforts. The New England Grassroots Environment Fund provided the stewards with a “Grow Grant,” which will support the stewards’ recent effort in joining the Soak Up the Rain program of the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services.

The grant will specifically fund a mailing designed to educate residents about improving water quality, provide potential leads for the Soak Up the Rain Great Bay and increase the stewards' membership. The mailing will also let homeowners know they can receive a step-by-step guide to make their landscapes more environmentally safe from pollutants and runoff.
