Upcoming Events - 2015

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.


Berkshire Wildlife Linkage talk: Laura Marx, of The Nature Conservancy, will be speaking on "The Berkshire Wildlife Linkage: using wildlife tracking and cameras to learn where animals are moving and ways we can help" at the Westfield Athenaeum at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, January 28. Learn about the key role that the Westfield watershed plays in allowing animals to move between the Green Mountains of VT and the Hudson highlands of NY, why that movement is important, and the results of tracking and camera studies along Rt 112 and the Westfield River in Huntington last winter that have provided new information on this fascinating topic. The program will last about an hour, with time for questions at the end.

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. A copy of the video can be obtained by sending a check for $10 (includes shipping and handling) made out to "WRWA" to Mike Young at 721 West Rd, Westfield, MA 01085.
