Ocean River Institute

The Ocean River Institute provides opportunities to make a difference and go the distance for savvy stewardship of a greener and bluer planet Earth.

The Ocean River Institute works on numerous causes throughout the year.  Here is one that is something we can all get behind:

In Falmouth Massachusetts, 16 striped bass were found dead from an algal bloom. The town responded with a lawn care ordinance to spread fertilizer once in the spring and not the state standard of five times.  They went from 5 pounds nitrogen per 1,000 square feet to 1 pound nitrogen per 1,000 square feet on healthy lawns two year ago. Today, the lawns of Falmouth are just as green as lawns of adjacent towns.  With your help we can do better.
