Since 1993, the non-profit Wyland Foundation has inspired millions of people around the world to become caring, informed stewards of our ocean and waterways.

The Alewife Cove Conservancy was founded by a concerned group of local community members committed to preserving the ecosystem at Alewife Cove.

It was inevitable that we would connect to help each other in our shared mission of saving our precious waterways.


Wyland's "Whaling Wall"

World-renowned environmental artist WYLAND has returned to New London 30 years after painting his "Whaling Wall" in order to create a new mural in it's place.  This time the city prepared the wall specifically so the new mural will not deteriorate from moisture behind it.

Check out this time-lapse video showing Wyland at work, from start to finish.


Our Shared Mission: Protect the Watersheds


Hope you're having a good rest of your week. What a privilege it was to meet you in New London the other day.

Wyland and our team love what you are doing for Alewife Cove and supporting a sustainable future in your beautiful part of the world.

I also wanted to say thank you for the generous donation you made to the foundation. It was over and above.

If there's anything we can do to assist you in your efforts in the future please let me know.

Steve Creech

President of Wyland Foundation
