We work in the North and South Rivers watershed, which we strive to preserve and protect. As the largest environmental organization on Boston’s South Shore, our reach has become regional. We work beyond our watershed through collaborations and partnerships to provide education and scientific support to help our friends and neighbors tackle the biggest water challenges that face our region.  Our thinking? A rising tide lifts all boats!

Towns in the North and South Rivers watershed include: Scituate, Hingham, Weymouth, Abington, Rockland, Whitman, Hanson, Hanover, Norwell, Pembroke, Marshfield, and Duxbury

Towns we work in through partnerships: Cohasset, Hull, Kingston and Plymouth
