On Monday,October 1st, 2018 from 8:30am-1:00pm, The Narragansett Bay Estuary Program and the Resilient Taunton Watershed Network hosted the State of Taunton River Watershed Workshop at Fall River Heritage State Park to spotlight partnerships for progress. This event informed attendees on major environmental factors that are affecting the Taunton River, its tributaries, surrounding lands, and ultimately Mount Hope Bay. Participants heard 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. This half day workshop was the follow up of the release of the 2017 State of Narragansett Bay and Its Watershed technical report. The October 1st workshop included Local Champion Awards, a Networking and Resource fair, and featured an array of distinguished speakers.
