In our work to protect the Ipswich River and its encompassing watershed we know we can accomplish more by working together with partners. Our three main partnership initiatives are:
Parker- Ipswich-Essex Rivers Partnership
The Parker-Ipswich-Essex Rivers Restoration Partnership (PIE-Rivers) is a regional network of organizations, governmental agencies and individuals all working to promote healthy rivers and ecosystems in the coastal rivers of northeastern Massachusetts.
Greenscapes North Shore
We work as part of a regional coalition with Eight Towns and the Great Marsh and Salem Sound Coastwatch to educate municipalities, residents and landscapers on how to care for their yards and gardens using less water and chemicals.
In conjunction with the Massachusetts Division of Ecological Restoration’s Adopt-A-Stream Program, we sponsor several “Stream Teams” comprised of citizen volunteers who advocate for their local segment of the Ipswich River watershed.
We also work closely with a number of local, regional and governmental partners to protect the land, water and wildlife of the Ipswich River Watershed.
