Upcoming Events

Join Our Board!

We're looking for a few good people to join our Board of Directors. We are especially interested in individuals of diverse backgrounds who live in Massachusetts or New Hampshire, including those with expertise in fundraising, community engagement, business management, the financial world, and, of course, environmental policy and science. Directors draw on their professional experience and a passion for river stewardship to provide general guidance to our staff and to oversee our mission.  We're a working Board, which means that we meet monthly, while also helping to raise support. If this opportunity interests you, please contact our executive director, Rusty Russell, at or 617.515.9522.
