Making the Watershed Connection

Activities beyond the former Massachusetts Watershed Initiative Nashua Team that have been funded by EOEA include: ongoing work of the Conservation Districts, Pure Water Stewardship Program, Stream Teams, a wide array of monitoring programs, active environmental programs with local schools, planning for growth projects in the greater Gardner region and the Devens communities, many programs of the Nashua River Watershed Association, and numerous projects carried out across the watershed supported by town boards and citizens.

We can't possibly identify all of the projects here that have been undertaken by stakeholders that contribute to sound watershed management, but can put them in broad categories — there are active land management projects and habitat assessments; protection efforts for riparian zones, water supplies, agricultural lands and all kinds of open space protection efforts. This is added to a wide array of educational and recreational opportunities, and expansion and linking of trails between towns and across state lines, making the Nashua Watershed a very special place.

Significant partnerships have been developed by the NRWA with local businesses, individuals and non-profit organizations, which can help make this Action Plan a reality. We invite you to help raise awareness about the river, and participate in the implementation of this plan — to ensure a bright future for the Nashua River Watershed.

Please refer to Sub-basin Profiles & Maps. and the Action Plan Matrix for detailed assessments and action steps.

Please refer to Watershed Perspectives in the Reading Room for more background on the Nashua River watershed.
