The author of the beautiful POND Judith Katz and her sponsor Robin Tauck are partnering with SoundWaters and donating 100% of the proceeds of the book to increase educational opportunities for students in need and enlist the next generation of stewards for our local waters. When you buy a book (or three!), every dollar benefits the students of SoundWaters.
the beautiful POND, a colorful 88-page story book of Old Mill Pond and Compo Cove by Westport author, artist and teacher Judy Katz, celebrates the pond, its history and environmental contribution to the town and region. Each page features a stunning water color of the pond and its environs, walking readers through the transformation of the pond from a working mill to a beloved and bucolic sanctuary for coastal life. Be swept away… and heed the call to preserve and protect Long Island Sound.
SoundWaters understands that stewardship of the environment begins with knowledge. Our educational programs are experience-based, using hands-on instruction to build a deeper interest and literacy in science and to improve school achievement. We use the waters, shores and ponds of Long Island Sound as our classroom. Increasing knowledge and access to this amazing natural resource will inspire a new band of stewards dedicated to protecting Long Island Sound.
