Celebrating a sustained effort to save the Charles River Watershed

The Charles River Watershed Association is one of America's oldest watershed organizations. They're celebrating their 50th birthday this year!

The Charles River Watershed Association "uses science, advocacy, and the law to protect, preserve, and enhance the Charles River and its watershed. The organization sees its focus as: developing a sound, science-based understanding of interactions in the watershed; promoting sustainable watershed management practices with government agencies and private entities; and advocating for protection, revitalization, and expansion of public parklands along the Charles River."

Located as we are on the north bank of the Charles River (and eagerly anticipating as this article is being written the opening of the next link in the Charles River Greenway, a dramatic, gorgeous boardwalk in front of the Museum, overlooking the river), we at the Charles River Museum are delighted to have been chosen as the venue for their 50th Birthday celebration!

We encourage you to help sustain the efforts of the CRWA by attending "Champions of the Charles," an elegant evening of cocktails, dinner, live music, and dancing at the Museum on Friday evening, October 2, 2015, beginning at 6:30pm.
