Please Donate: Help Protect the Nashua River Watershed Now…and Forever!
Why support the NRWA? You are the NRWA—our success is your success!
- The NRWA is a regional leader and one of the only organizations in Massachusetts and New Hampshire to use a watershed management approach to protecting both water and land. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has called this approach the “key to the future.”1
- The NRWA has a history of success. What began in 1969 as a grassroots volunteer movement is now a professional organization that combines the latest scientific approaches to land and water protection with outstanding knowledge of our region.
- The NRWA depends on you. As a non-profit organization, we depend on support from individuals, businesses, and organizations to continue our work. Your contributions make programs like Water Monitoring and River Classroom possible. We are a 501c3 non-profit and your gift is tax deductible to the full extent of the law.
There are many ways to support us and we appreciate all of them!
