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!

Each spring over 1/2 million river herring migrate from the ocean up the Mystic River to the Mystic Lakes and to Horn Pond . You can help document one of the most amazing wildlife migrations in Massachusetts by participating in our herring monitoring program.
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.
