RiverFest a Testament to Progress on the Neponset

Perhaps more than any other activity I’ve been to so far, this event symbolized just how far the Neponset River has come since 1967 when NepRWA was founded. Just a few years ago, this event would have been impossible.

The Case for Becoming a Sponsor

Fish Kills

While unsettling, it's not unusual to see dead fish floating along a lake or pond shoreline as the waters warm up.

A Fond Farewell

I'm leaving with a whole bunch of memories and with so much respect for what this small non-profit can do!

Thanks for joining us for our 50th Annual Meeting

It was a fun night!  Celebrating a 50th anniversary is a very special achievement and we were so pleased to be able to share the occasion with so many members, volunteers, (current and former) employees and board members. The celebratory occasion was made more special by the presentation by Senator Walter Timilty, of a citation […]
