Do you live on the Winnicut River, or one of its brooks or streams? Would you like to learn how to have a "better backyard," or be a steward for wildlife? Do you enjoy birding, kayaking, or trail walking? Have you got Invasive Plant Problems? Would you like to learn more about the Winnicut River and its wildlife diversity, from its treefrogs and trout lilies, to its black bears and white cedars? If you can answer 'yes' to any of the above, we need YOU. The WRWC is working hard to develop a Better Backyard campaign which promises to be a rewarding program for land/homeowners interested in protecting the integrity of the Winnicut River, its streams and brooks, and ultimately Great Bay, and the wildlife that lives and breeds here.

Estuaries Partnership's 2010 Conservation Management Plan

Yesterday's release of PREP's 2010 Comprehensive Conservation and Management Plan, held at New Castle's scenic Great Island Common, saw more than 50 members and representatives from area conservation organizations and municipalities.  U.S. Rep. Carol Shea-Porter personally spoke in support of what she called an "ambitious" plan, while representatives from other NH and Maine congressional delegates read letters supporting the plan.

With more than 80 action plans developed over an 18-month period through a series of workshops that more than 150 researchers, natural resource managers and watershed citizens attended, the plan is just that- ambitious.  But more than 200 organizations will be involved in its implementation over a 10-year period.

 With more and more news on Great Bay's health making headlines, water quality issues in areas "upstream" are also getting attention.
