The goal of this meeting, held on August 8th, was to share and receive feedback on initial concept designs for the Malden River Greenway.
MyRWA is thrilled to introduce you to our awesome team of summer interns:
The Mystic River Watershed Association in partnership with the Massachusetts Division of Marine Fisheries estimated that 630,000 river herring migrated upstream to spawn at the Mystic Lakes this year.
In 2017, ninety trained citizen scientists counted the largest number of herring since the monitoring program began, documenting another strong Mystic River herring migration at an estimated 630,000 fish!
Over the past several weeks, construction crews have been working to create a living shoreline along the southwest edge of the Wynn property, something that MyRWA strongly advocated for during the planning and design phase.
Mystic enthusiast and Arlington resident Rick Beinecke passed away suddenly on June 19th.
Together with the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Mystic River Watershed Association (MyRWA) issued the 2016 Water Quality Report Card for the Mystic River watershed.

Exciting changes are underway on the Malden River - get involved to share your vision!
