Upcoming Events - 2014

WRWA sponsors or participates in a variety of events during the year. Many of these events offer opportunities for volunteers to get involved with watershed issues. The events listed below are those which are scheduled for the next few months. Details on additional events will be posted as information becomes available.


Source to Sea River Cleanup: In conjunction with the Connecticut River Watershed Council, WRWA will host fall river cleanups along the Westfield River in Westfield and surrounding communities on Saturday, September 27 (Westfield) and Sunday, September 28 (Agawam). On Saturday, meet at 9:00 am at the River Walk parking area off Meadow St. in Westfield (just E of the northbound 10/202 bridge). On Sunday, meet at Pynchon Point in Agawam, near the mouth of the Westfield River. Wear old clothes that you don't mind getting dirty and wet and bring gloves if you've got them. We'll provide gloves, trash bags, and directions to a spot that needs cleaning. Contact Mark Damon (413-374-1921) or Sheryl Becker (413-977-1577) for more information.

A new version of The Watershed Waltz, a puppet show about healthy watersheds intended for elementary school children, was produced in 2011 and is now available. The original show was developed by Marmelade Productions in 2008, with funding from The Highlands Community Initiative (a project of The Trustees of Reservations) and WRWA, and has been performed at many elementary schools in the watershed. Copies of the DVD are available for $15 each (including shipping and handling). Make your check payable to "Westfield River Watershed Association" and send it to WRWA, PO Box 1764, Westfield, MA 01086-1764.

1955 Flood Documentary DVD: Copies of the DVD Five Feet and Rising: The Flood of '55 are still available through WRWA. This 28-minute documentary, produced by Jack Hayward of Hayward Communications and co-produced by Mark Saint Jean of Westfield State College in cooperation with WRWA, recounts the devastating Westfield River floods of August 1955. The film includes a number of interviews with Westfield residents recalling their experiences of the 1955 event - the largest recorded flood in Westfield's history. To obtain a copy, contact Mike Young.
