Film Screening and Discussion: Great Ponds: Episode 1: On Our Watch

Martha’s Vineyard's great ponds have been a source of sustenance and beauty for countless generations of Islanders. Recently, many of these ponds appear to be at a tipping point, with algae blooms choking out shellfish, and cyanobacteria making the water unsafe for pets and humans.

Produced in partnership with the Vineyard Conservation Society, On Our Watch is the first of a three-part series documenting the health of these spectacular coastal ponds, and what our community is doing to help. Following the efforts of organizations such as the Great Pond Foundation, the Martha’s Vineyard Commission, and the Martha’s Vineyard Shellfish Group, as well as several community members, the film examines the history of these ponds, the challenges they face, and what can be done to save them.

Followed by a discussion with director Ollie Becker and Island conservationists. Purchase tickets at: https://tmvff.org/greatponds-ep1
