Rating: 4.87 stars   15 reviews

Issues: Environment, Water

Location: PO Box 576 Ipswich MA 01938 USA

Mission: Protect wildlife, keep the Ipswich River flowing and provide clean, safe water
Results: This year we will help residents in 9 towns to Greenscape - to have beautiful landscapes that protect our water, saving time and money. For the last few years we have spent a lot of time speaking for the river at meetings to shape sustainable water management for decades to come. We are leading a new partnership to restore the Ipswich, Parker and Essex Rivers and the Great Marsh; we will accomplish more by working together. We recently put in a new canoe dock at our headquarters, expanding public access to what many people say is the most beautiful part of the river. Members can use our canoes for free!
Target demographics: The 330,000 people who get their water from the Ipswich River and its surrounding watershed, as well as all the people who enjoy walking or paddling along the river.
Programs: Our major programs include: Cleaning up polluted stormwater runoff, Education and Outreach, Fish and Habitat Restoration, Greenscapes, Policy and Advocacy, River Restoration, Science and Monitoring, Stream Teams and Water Conservation.
