On January 25 at the Montshire Museum of Science, Randolph residents Jenna Guarino, a watershed educator, and Ed Delhagen, a sustainable development specialist, spoke about their travels to Mongolia to help launch an ambitious project called Securing Our Future. Jenna and Ed’s beautiful slideshow highlighted their experiences helping the citizens of Mongolia create watershed protection policies and a nationwide river monitoring program in 2006. This presentation was the first event in the WRP’s 2007 Education Series, which is designed to raise awareness about watershed issues and to promote local stewardship. Thanks to Jenna and Ed for an inspiring presentation and to the Montshire Museum and the Upper Valley Food Cooperative for co-hosting this event!
Individual donors funded the implementation of the Hurricane Flats Farm streambank restoration project – an innovative streambank restoration project designed to improve water quality, habitat, and flood resiliency in the wake of Tropical Storm Irene.
The WRP and its partners identify and implement culvert replacement and retrofit projects to improve fish passage, connect vital habitats, and increase native fish populations.
The WRP’s Monitoring the White River Program engages watershed teachers and students in classroom and field work activities that raise awareness about watershed issues and create opportunities for hands-on, place-based ecology education.
The WRP’s Trees for Streams Program seeks to restore streamside vegetation throughout the watershed by working with local landowners to plant native trees and shrubs along their river banks – at no cost to them.
