The Westport River Watershed Alliance has purchased the historic Head Garage at the Head of Westport to be its permanent headquarters and River Center. After planning and construction, WRWA will be working together for clean water and a healthy river community at its new location on the river. WRWA will empower the public with the knowledge, well-researched scientific data, and practical solutions to address the challenges of water resource protection, restoration, conservation, and sustainability.

The new 2016 WRWA calendar is in! This edition comes in two styles – one with Westport River tides and heights, and the other a traditional calendar with boxes for marking important dates. The colorful photos for the new calendar were all taken by WRWA’s Community Engagement Manager, Steve Connors, a Westport landscape and nature photographer.
Calendars are $20 and available at WRWA’s office, or at the following retail locations: Westport Apothecary, Lees Market, Partners Village Store, Pine Hill Convenience, Simmons Store (Adamsville), and The Country Store at the Head of Westport. For out-of-towners, contact us and we can mail you one.
The goals of the Westport River Watershed Alliance are to:
- promote the environmental integrity of the watershed and its coastal environs.
- to advocate the wise use and preservation of natural resources in the watershed for the aesthetic, recreational, and economic benefit of the citizens of the area.
- to educate the general public about the interrelationship of our waters, soils, plants, animals, and people.
