Topic is Biological Diversity:  Tuesday, November 28, 2017, 7:00 to 9:00 p.m.

Topic is History and Culture:  Wednesday, November 29, 2017, 7:00 to 9:00 p.m.

Both meetings at the NRWA River Resource Center, 592 Main Street (Rt. 119) in Groton, MA

The Nashua River Wild & Scenic River Study Committee invites the public to two input meetings for those who wish to comment on the draft Management Plan that is being prepared by the Committee as part of the process to seek designation for segments of the Nashua, Squannacook, and Nissitissit as part of the National Park Service’s Partnership Wild and Scenic River Program.  Specifically, two of the "Outstandingly Remarkable Resource Values" that make our rivers eligible for such designation are the “biodiversity”, and “historic and cultural” resources related to the rivers. Attend the evening that has the focus you are interested in or come both evenings. If you share your knowledge and insights with us at these meetings, our Plan will be enhanced.  Come tell us what you know that is unique & special about our rivers and these resource values, and what can be improved.  Representatives working on the draft Management Plan come from the Massachusetts communities of Ayer, Bolton, Dunstable, Groton, Harvard, Lancaster, Pepperell, Shirley, and Townsend, and the New Hampshire communities of Brookline and Hollis, as well as from the NRWA, the National Park Service, and other federal and state agencies. Input from all communities is welcome. For more information see:
