Jones River Allies JRA Charity Profile
Jones River Landing is a uniquely valuable landmark, steeped in history as well as a forward-thinking mission for advancing our environmental heritage. Representing three hundred years of boatbuilding tradition, it is a vestige of the once vibrant seafaring industry that thrived along the Jones Riverís banks. As the largest river in Cape Cod Bay, the Jones River provides an essential habitat to a wide array of fish and wildlife that contributes directly to the health of the Gulf of Maine ecosystem. Now the home to multiple mission-driven programs, the Landing is undergoing an extensive revitalization designed to preserve and steward our communityís vital natural and historic resources.
Jones River Landing was formed in June of 2003 by the Jones River Watershed Association to be a center for the study, restoration, and stewardship of sensitive ecological systems vital to the health, habitat and species of the Jones River and Cape Cod Bay. The Landing offers unique opportunities to participate in many activities including monitoring of aquatic environments, projects to restore water quality and coastal ecosystems, and water-based recreation such as boating and fishing.
