Celebrating Earth Day and Rachel Carson in Woods Hole

We want to wish everyone a very safe and happy Earth Day ?! Today, in honor of the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day, Falmouth Board of Selectment have proclaimed April 22 Rachel Carson Day!

Carson, who wrote the book Silent Spring, is often called the mother of the modern environmental movement. She also spent a significant amount of time in Woods Hole! Hear members of the Woods Hole community members (including Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI), Woods Hole Research Center, Marine Biological Laboratory Quick's Hole), and the Woods Hole Business Association share what Rachel Carson means to them.
