Learn about the Taunton River Watershed
East Bridgewater is one of 43 cities and towns which are included in the Taunton River Watershed. This includes rivers that feed into it. Tributaries like the Satucket and the Matfield Rivers. This river system also includes many smaller streams and “headwaters” – the most upstream areas, often wetlands and springs where rivers originate. The Taunton River Watershed Alliance (TRWA) has been a voice for the Taunton River and its watershed since 1988.

They are an Alliance of concerned residents, businesses and organizations united to restore and properly manage the water and natural resources within the Watershed. They advocate for environmental protection, sustainable development and responsible stewardship of our precious and irreplaceable water resources.

The TRWA mission is:
*To protect and restore the Watershed’s natural resources for current and future generations.
*To build and support responsible stewardship of our fragile ecosystems, water quality, forests, farmland and wetlands.
*To be an integral resource for environmental education that is so crucial to the continued health and enjoyment of the Watershed’s waterways, woodlands, meadows, marshes, wildlife and open spaces.
*To be a voice for threatened land and water resources.

If you would like to participate in achieving the mission, you can support by becoming a corporate sponsor, an activity sponsor, a member or volunteer. Whether you can give time or money your help would be greatly appreciated.

New Horizons, New Opportunities:
Earth friendly lifestyle changes are here; bringing about new industries and ways of living that don't harm the planet.
For energy sourcing, offshore floating wind farms are further out in the ocean, less in the way and more productive: As reported by John Upton of Climate Central and Clarisa Diaz of Quartz: Wind farming is "bringing job training for a growing army of maintenance workers known as wind energy technicians. The skills are being taught by hundreds of community colleges and other training institutions nationwide." Offshore wind farming has been booming in Europe for decades and more recently across parts of Asia. "... oceans are reliably blustery places. Calculations by the nonprofit Environment America indicate that offshore wind farms could provide almost all of the power Americans need by 2050. That means keeping the lights, heaters, and air conditioners on and fueling a nation’s worth of electrified cars, trucks, and transit systems, all from coastal wind farms."

And speaking of farms... this week I learned about how Kelp farming helps the environment, takes minimal start up costs and is perfect for those of us who aren't made for the office lifestyle.
Looking forward folks: imagination, innovation & change. It's exciting. ~ Jacquie
