2023 Swim

Ned's Point Swimming

Buzzards Bay is one of the most beautiful coastal waterways on the East Coast, but it's under constant threat from dangers like nitrogen pollution, oil spills, and disappearing forests and wetlands.

You can help save Buzzards Bay by donating to our team's upcoming Buzzards Bay Swim on Saturday, June 24. We'll be doing our part by joining hundreds of others in swimming 1.2 miles across outer New Bedford Harbor as we raise funds for and awareness of the need to protect clean water in our community.

Through this challenging event, we're hoping to meet or exceed our fundraising goal to support the Buzzards Bay Coalition's important work across conservation, research, advocacy, and education. Any amount - big or small - truly makes a difference in helping to protect clean water for today, and for future generations.

Thank you for your support!

P.S. You can join us at the Swim on June 24 from 7-10am — there's a breakfast beach party at Fort Phoenix in Fairhaven that's open to everybody. Hope to see you there!
