Environmental education provides important opportunities for students to become engaged in real world issues that transcend classroom walls. They can see the relevance of their classroom studies to the complex environmental issues confronting our planet and they can acquire the skills they’ll need to be creative problem solvers and powerful advocates.
The Saugus River watershed stretches from Lake Quannapowitt in Wakefield to the Lynn Harbor/Saugus River estuary, encompassing all or part of the following eleven communities: Saugus, Lynn, Revere, Wakefield, Lynnfield, Peabody, Melrose, Everett, Stoneham, Reading and Malden.
The Saugus River Watershed Council is a non- profit organization founded in 1991 to protect the natural resources of the watershed. Our priorities include restoring water quality, ex- panding public access, restoring habitat for anadromous fish and other wildlife, and pro- tecting critical resources such as Rumney Marsh and Reedy Meadow.
