“The Neponset River has been a part of my life for 60 years and holds a special place in my heart. My friends and I used to skate on an area just above Baker’s Chocolate next to the “Iron Bridge” and I use to fish smelt at Godfrey’s Wharf now known as Milton Landing”
–Richard O’Mara, Owner of Cedar Grove Gardens in Dorchester, River Advocate, and NepRWA Board Member
Dear River Advocate,
The Neponset River and the parklands along it are an incredible resource for our local community.
When everything was closed this spring, the river and local parks were still open to all of us, with no admission fees. But healthy, protected natural resources aren’t free. They depend on the leadership and hard work of hundreds of people like you.
The Neponset River Watershed Association is a grassroots conservation group that works to protect the river and has helped make it what it is today. Their volunteers and staff do amazing work to reduce water pollution, restore wildlife habitats, open river access for everyone and prepare our communities for climate change.
I hope you will take advantage of this unique opportunity to protect the river — and I thank you for your support!
