The Water Fund

The Board of the Nantucket Land Council is excited to announce the creation of “The Water Fund”; a donor restricted fund to help support marine and freshwater projects on Nantucket. For the past five years, the Nantucket Land Council has steadily transitioned into being the leading voice for the protection, investigation, and education of our water resources.

We are consciously focusing on several significant niche areas including researching the health and quality of freshwater ponds, analyzing stormwater runoff in the downtown area and educating the public on the health and vitality of Nantucket Harbor and beyond.

In the coming years, we will be expanding our water projects by supplementing the Town of Nantucket’s water quality sampling, engaging in eelgrass transplant and restoration projects, and planning critical stormwater infrastructure upgrades.

We can’t do this additional work without your help!


We have received a generous $25,000 donation to kick start our campaign along with full participation and backing of the Board of Directors. We need your help! Please consider making an additional donation to The Water Fund on top of your operating giving and help the NLC achieve even greater success in protecting and preserving the water resources of Nantucket.
