The mission of the Nashua River Watershed Association is to work for a healthy ecosystem with clean water and open spaces for human and wildlife communities, where people work together to sustain mutual economic and environmental well-being in the Nashua River watershed.
The Nashua River Watershed Association was founded in 1969 on the belief that every individual has the power to make a difference. That belief led to the clean-up of one of the nation’s most polluted rivers, an internationally recognized success story.
That same belief powers the work of the NRWA today, to act as a regional leader in natural resource protection and environmental education for our 32 watershed communities in north central Massachusetts and southern New Hampshire.
Restore and protect water quality and quantity for people, fish, and wildlife
Conserve open spaces for water quality, wildlife habitat, farms, forests, and recreation
As a non-profit, our success depends on the support of members, donors, and volunteers. Help make a difference, now and for the future, by getting involved today!
