Climate Resiliency


The Mystic River watershed is facing growing climate-related challenges including flooding, drought and heat.  We partner with government, business and community stakeholders throughout the watershed to help its people and places not only survive but thrive in the face of climate challenges.



We raised $14,035.05 for our Baseline Water Quality Monitoring Program on #Giving Tuesday. Fifty volunteers collect data at 15 sites every month and this data leads to improvements in our watershed. For the last 15 years we haven’t missed a month - and thanks to generous donations from community members, this streak will continue.
