What We’re Doing

About Chatham CAN

Chatham CAN is a group of volunteers working to inspire and mobilize Chatham residents, businesses and organizations to act to minimize the impact of climate change. Chatham’s geography, history and identity, so closely linked to the sea, makes our work urgent. Chatham CAN is a network affiliated with the Cape Cod Climate Change Collaborative.

On May 22,2021, Chatham CAN presented a panel conversation about the importance of our local natural resources to the ongoing battle against climate change. We learned the critical protections provided by beaches, coastal banks, salt marshes, trees, pond and more. And we learned some effective ways to make sure that they stay healthy.
