The new 2017 WRWA calendar is in! This edition comes with Westport River tides and heights. The colorful photos for the new calendar were taken by local photographers as part of our annual photo contest.
Calendars are $20 and available at WRWA’s office, or at the following retail locations: Lees Market, Partners Village Store, AS Deams & Country Woolens. For out-of-towners, contact us and we can mail you one.
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.

We are pleased to offer a $1,000 scholarship opportunity for graduating seniors in the Westport River watershed: Fall River, Dartmouth, Freetown, Westport, Little Compton, and Tiverton. The award was made possible by the generosity of the late Margot C. Boote, and by Bill Heath in memory of his parents Ruth and Bill Heath.

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.
