The mission of the NSRWA is to preserve, restore, maintain and conserve in their natural state, the waters and related natural resources within the watershed.
Our goals are to:
Protect the watershed and promote responsible growth by working in partnerships to preserve open space, scenic vistas and sensitive natural resources;
Educate and encourage stewardship of the watershed through public education, outreach and recreation programs; and
Restore the water quality of the rivers by identifying and correcting adverse impacts.
The North and South Rivers Watershed Association, Inc. (NSRWA) is a non-profit grassroots environmental organization located on the South Shore of Massachusetts. The NSRWA was founded in 1970 and has grown to over 1,150 household members today, comprised of individuals, families, businesses, and other environmentally-concerned organizations. The membership comes primarily from the 12 towns within the watershed: Norwell, Hingham, Scituate, Marshfield, Hanover, Pembroke, Whitman, Hanson, Duxbury, Weymouth, Rockland and Abington. The NSRWA was created by a handful of river-lovers bound together by an intense devotion to the natural beauty of the area and a strong commitment to protect these natural resources for their own and future generations.
