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.
Dog Poop. It’s a serious problem.
Because it contains disease-causing bacteria that can make people sick. Even
worse is the knowledge that dog waste may be polluting our drinking water, local swimming areas, and favorite fishing spots.
WRWA recently sent all Westport residents a flyer called “The Shocking Truth About Your Dog’s Poop”. This flyer’s production was made possible by the Massachusetts Environmental Trust. To download a copy of the flyer click the image below.
You can make a difference for clean water in your town. Pick up after your pooch. Remind your neighbors to pick up after theirs. Your dog can’t help it. But you can. It’s easy.
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.
