Our goals are to mitigate ecological degradation, restore higher levels of native species diversity, and improve wildlife habitat in the watershed. Projects include:
One simple way to improve the ecological function of a waterway is to remove the man-made structures that impede its functions.
One of the main culprits of water pollution in the watershed is stormwater – the water that runs over the landscape during and after a rainfall or when snowfall melts, picking up pollutants as it flows.
Invasive species harm our local ecosystems. Keeping them under control gives our native plants and animals a chance to thrive.
Salt marshes provide critical services like flood control and carbon capture. Restoring them is beneficial to both the people and the critters that call them home.
Inspired by the 1996 River Protection Act, and with encouragement from NepRWA and the Foxborough Conservation Commission, the New England Patriots ownership chose to restore the Neponset River through a process called “daylighting.”
