We protect and restore the Mystic river
The Mystic River Watershed is a network of rivers, streams and lakes that drain into the Mystic River.
The Mystic River Watershed Association addresses issues of water quality and environmental preservation.
We work with more than 1,000 volunteers each year in a variety of projects. Discover the Mystic today!
The Mystic Greenways Initiative will connect 20 miles of paths, improve hundreds of acres of parkland and engage thousands of community members from the Mystic Lakes to Boston Harbor. We are working collaboratively with federal and state agencies, dozens of municipalities and many local community groups and citizens to create this important park system, which will ultimately provide mobility, economic development and public and environmental health benefits.
