The Great Salt Pond, with its shorelines and wetlands, provides Block Island with a beautiful sheltered harbor that is a haven for recreational boating. It also provides a rich, diverse, and fragile ecosystem that deserves protection from the type of over-development that has ruined many other New England harbors with pollution.

Our mission is to protect and enhance the environmental
quality of the Great Salt Pond and its Watershed.

The Committee for the Great Salt Pond, one of Block Island’s most active environmental organizations, was founded in response to a 1986 proposal to build a large ferry terminal inside the pond. The construction of this terminal with its dredging, bulkheading, landfill, and paving, and the subsequent introduction of cars, trucks, passengers, and freight to this area, would have had a devastating environmental impact. It would have forever changed the nature of the Great Salt Pond’s recreational boating character.
