NRWA River Resource Center
The Nashua River Watershed Association is headquartered at our River Resource Center in Groton, Massachusetts (just one block from the mainstem Nashua River and Petapawag Boat Launch). Map and directions. The River Resource Center houses staff offices, large and small meeting spaces, a collection of wildlife mounts, and the Bill Farnsworth Conservation Clearinghouse. A short self-guided Nature Trail on the property is open to visitors. The trail is less than a half-mile on flat wooded terrain where visitors can view local flora and find signs of local birds and mammals.
Bill Farnsworth Conservation Clearinghouse
Named after one of the NRWA’s founders, the Bill Farnsworth Conservation Clearinghouse provides citizens, watershed planners, local governments, teachers, students, and others access to a wide variety of information about our watershed. The collection of information available includes watershed planning resources, such as by-laws, open space and master plans, historic archives on conservation, resources for educators, audio-visual materials, and materials on recreation in our watershed. The NRWA is in the process of electronically cataloguing the Clearinghouse collection. Those interested in using the Clearinghouse are encouraged to contact the NRWA to make an appointment to do so. Materials must be used on-site, and are not available for check-out.
