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.


Storm Drain Labeling: Weather permitting, we'll be doing storm drain labeling in Westfield on Saturday, August 9 during the morning. Streets need to be dry for the labeling adhesive to work, so a final call will be made on the Friday before each date. If conditions are good, we'll meet at 9:00 a.m. - location to be determined. Wear old clothes and bring some water if you come. Contact Mike Young (562-8498, call before 10 pm please) to sign up.

Fly-Fishing Clinic: In conjunction with the Western Massachusetts Fly-Fishing Association, WRWA will host a fly-fishing clinic on Saturday, September 13 at the Rt. 20 turnout in Huntington. Additional details will be posted here as they become available, or contact Bill Rose for more information.

Source to Sea River Cleanup: In conjunction with the Connecticut River Watershed Council, WRWA will host a fall river cleanup along the Westfield River in Westfield and surrounding communities on Saturday, September 27. We anticipate having two meeting points, one in Westfield and one in Agawam. Additional details will be posted here as they become available, or contact Mark Damon or Sheryl Becker for more information.

Storm Drain Labeling: While storm drain labeling will go on throughout the summer, we plan a final labeling event on Saturday, October 4. Watch for additional dates earlier in the year (which will be posted on this site), or contact Mike Young for more information.

The Watershed Waltz - Own the DVD!:

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.
