2020 is NSRWA’s 50th Anniversary…
and we’re going to make a SPLASH!
NSRWA began as a group of 200 local citizens 50 years ago. Today, the organization has grown to more than 1,600 household members across our region, making NSRWA the largest environmental organization on Boston’s South Shore. With its supporters, NSRWA strives to act as a catalyst for change by boosting the capacity of grassroots groups, fostering advocacy networks, and serving as a strong voice for our rivers and coastal waters.
2020 is NSRWA’s 50th anniversary, and everyone is invited to celebrate with us all year long with activities, contests, and events. We’ve got a series of FREE walks in the watershed planned with NSRWA Environmental Educator Brian Taylor:
- Wednesday, January 1 – New Year’s Day Walk, Driftway Conservation Park, Scituate 1:00pm
- Saturday, February 15 – Winter Walk through Wompatuck State Park, Hingham 11:00am
