SUPPORT CLEAN WATER NOW!
For 37 years, The Merrimack River Watershed Council has worked to make the river cleaner and taught kids to inspire the next generation of river heroes. The Merrimack River has come a long way since the industrial era; it is now cleaner than it has been in years. Bald eagles have returned, and shellfishing has opened at Joppa Flats, Newburyport for the first time in 80 years! More people are swimming, boating, and fishing the river than ever.
BUT We need YOUR help. We can’t do our education or testing efforts without funds. Talk is cheap; ACTION isn’t!
