Organizations like the Ipswich River Watershed Association rely on strong partnerships. We are fortunate to have the Division of Ecological Restoration (DER) providing this support to nearly all our programs. With the recent release of their 2017 Annual Report, the DER highlights many of their partnership projects, including those with Ipswich River. Their leadership with an active social-based marketing study will provide critical information to expand water conservation outreach in the Ipswich River watershed communities. The DER has been instrumental in guiding river restoration projects at two main stem dams on the Ipswich, and is also active in the Parker-Ipswich-Essex Rivers Partnership. We could go on! Thank you to the DER staff; we couldn’t do our work without you!
