Cape Cod is a fragile land of unique habitats and sensitive natural resources. Our ponds, meadows, forests, dunes, salt marshes, heathlands and beaches are inextricably linked to our economy and our way of life. APCC is committed to the stewardship of this special land of sand and water, speaking out for Cape Cod’s environment, building effective partnerships, and providing real solutions for Cape Cod’s environmental challenges—now and for future generations.
