Do You Have Something Important To Tell Us?
Maybe report what might be an environmental crime, but you want to remain anonymous?
Berkshire Environmental Action Team is very pleased to announce that No Fracked Gas In Mass is now a program of BEAT. Rose Wessel’s organization and website, No Fracked Gas In Mass and NoFrackedGasInMass.org, have been the face of the grassroots opposition to the proposed natural gas pipeline projects in our area since early in 2014, and they will continue to focus on this issue until these projects are stopped. Donations to No Fracked Gas In Mass are always welcome and will continue to support Rose Wessel’s ongoing and tireless work in opposing the pipeline. Welcome aboard Rose and No Fracked Gas In Mass!

BEAT’s Massachusetts Environmental Trust (MET) Work
In September of 2015 BEAT received grant funding from the Massachusetts Environmental Trust (MET) to survey stormwater outfalls during dry weather conditions. This is a two-year grant ending in 2017. The grant is funded through the sale of environmental license plates such as the one shown here. You can help support the program that funded us by purchasing one of these license plates.
MET is one of the largest sources of grant funds for water resources in the Commonwealth. Since its founding, MET has awarded over $20 million in grants to organizations protecting and and enhancing the Commonwealth’s water resources and natural environments.
It’s never too late to donate to BEAT!
