251 Causeway St., Suite 800, BOSTON, MA 02114

Who we serve

The MassBays region covers more than 1000 miles of coastline, from the tip of Cape Cod Bay to the New Hampshire border, and serves 50 coastal communities. To provide technical assistance to all communities in the planning area, MassBays has teamed up with five partnering organizations to host MassBays regional coordinators. The regional coordinators work closely with communities to implement program goals and objectives in five coastal subregions: Upper North Shore, Lower North Shore, Metro Boston, South Shore, and Cape Cod.

Request For Response: MassBays Strategic Communications Plan

All National Estuary Programs are required to develop a communications plan that will help us implement our Comprehensive Conservation and Management Plan. However, while MassBays’ communications needs may be straightforward, several aspects of MassBays’ structure affect our ability to implement communications efforts.

We've posted a call for proposals from consultants interested in helping us develop a Strategic Communications Plan. Our ultimate goals are to broaden awareness of MassBays' work and accomplishments; highlight scientific research, monitoring, and management needs across the planning area; and invite current and new partners to participate actively in meeting the CCMP goals.
