Since its beginnings in the 1960s, MRWC has served as “the eyes and ears” of the watershed. MRWC is a nonprofit organization dedicated to protecting the lands and waters of the watershed for the benefit of all its inhabitants, human and wild. MRWC educates area residents about local watershed issues and works in all areas and tributaries within the basin.
MRWC organizes a variety of volunteer activities to engage the public in stewardship, monitoring, and river protection. MRWC also sponsors river discovery through paddling trips and Blue Trails.
MRWC works collaboratively with state, federal, municipal , local business, and conservation groups to formulate and implement watershed friendly policies.
