River Center Open House

Westport River Watershed Alliance to Host
River Center Ribbon Cutting / Open House October 19
Time: 1pm-3pm
Location: 493 Old County Road, Westport, MA


Westport, MA – The Westport River Watershed Alliance will welcome local residents to the River Center, their new, recently completed headquarters at the Head of Westport on Saturday, October 19 from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m.  The open house will allow guests to see the beautifully renovated “Head Garage” that now serves as the organization’s offices and learning center.

The building features energy saving and pollution reducing technologies including LED lighting, highly efficient heating and cooling systems and composting toilets.  Solar panels will be installed on the south facing roof in the coming months. Much of the old pine and spruce boards from the old attic were salvaged and reused on interior finishes.

The first level has large aquariums that will display many of the species that live in the Westport River.  The floor is painted with a large map of the watershed, created by local artist Barbara Healy. The space will be used for education programs and for occasional meetings and events.
