This year we are adding a second worthy cause – the Merrimack River Watershed. The health of the Merrimack River is important to all of the Plum Island Residents, and we’re proud to work with and support this organization. Volunteers from the club will be helping us on the day of the event – we appreciate their help!
Merrimack River Watershed Council focuses on conserving the Merrimack River. The river, at 117 miles in length, drains a watershed of 5,000 square miles that sustains a population of over 2.5 million, while furnishing drinking water to over 600,000 people. Home to more than 200 New Hampshire and Massachusetts communities, the Merrimack watershed provides major recreational opportunities, diverse fish and wildlife habitat, and stunning scenic beauty.
