In August 2019, longtime Dartmouth resident Maureen Jones received a call informing her that her duck had just won her the Duck Derby grand prize. "I was floored!" she said. "I enter the Duck Derby every year, but I always just buy one duck for $10."

Each year, coastal waterbirds such as Piping Plovers, Least Terns, and American Oystercatchers return to their summer homes on the Massachusetts shoreline. And each year, our Coastal Waterbird Program (CWP) team works to protect the habitats that are crucial to the continued recovery of these threatened birds.
