The State of the Taunton River Watershed: Building Partnerships for Progress

Fall River Heritage State Park

Monday, October 1, 2018 8:30 AM – 1:00 PM

Details: The Narragansett Bay Estuary Program and the Resilient Taunton Watershed Network are hosting the State of Taunton River Watershed Workshop spotlighting partnerships for progress. This event will inform attendees on major environmental factors that are affecting the Taunton River, its tributaries, surrounding lands, and ultimately Mount Hope Bay. Participants will hear from a range of professionals about clean water, changes to our land and waters from more people and more development, and how rising seas affect our coasts. Join partners and meet new ones; exchange ideas and lessons learned; and help us protect and restore this place that is ours together.  

This half day workshop is the follow up of the release of the 2017 State of Narragansett Bay and Its Watershed technical report. The October 1st workshop will include Local Champion Awards, a Networking and Resource fair, and will feature an array of distinguished speakers. If you would like to sponsor this event, please visit the registration page.
