Weekapaug Green Initiatives
Weekapaug Green was founded in 2007 to raise awareness of our community’s natural coastal environment and the impacts of climate change. WG offers opportunities to learn about actions we can take to protect and preserve our environment and health. WG also helped establish the WFC Organic Community Garden located on Noyes Neck Farm. We are an volunteer organization. Over the years WG has offered presentations on topics such as the impact of lawn fertilizers on pond health, the environmental and health impacts of plastics, the importance of bees and other pollinators, the impact of climate change and sea level rise, the need for sustainability in “local” fisheries, and the importance of using native plants rather than invasive plants. Other events sponsored have been a spring community clean up, walking tours identifying local native plants and environmental book discussions. WG Stewards: Julia Bradford, Susie Coleman, Susan DiLoreto, Mary Goodman, Sally Gordon, Linda Griffin, Gale Hunt, Brooke Kinney, Maura Legare, Kelly Markey, Carole Maynard, Briana O’Haver, Margaret Phillips, Stephanie Raia, Amy Randall, Jill Shiel. Thank you to our volunteers and supporters. To volunteer email email@example.com

Nat Earle Walk/Run
The Nat Earle Walk/Run is held every year around July 4th at the Weekapaug Yacht Club. The run began in 2003 as a way to commemorate Nat and his love and contributions to the Weekapaug Yacht Club. Nat learned to sail, to race, and later became the head sailing instructor at WYC. As an adult, he was an active volunteer, was Commodore and on the Board of WYC.
The donations in memory of Nat and the proceeds from the Walk/Run support the Junior Sailing Program and have been used to purchase boats in the past enabling young sailors to participate in the WYC program.
Please see the Community Calendar for start time and details.
