The Memphremagog Watershed Association was founded in 2007 as an organization dedicated to the preservation of the environment and natural beauty of the Memphremagog watershed and to ensure its protection for generations to come. We host educational events, organize projects to clean and renaturalize lakes and rivers, protect native plant life, and work with federal, state and local agencies to improve the quality of life in the watershed.
Welcome to 2019! It's a new year.
And even though there is snow on the ground, we're already thinking about our summer programming. But we can't do it without you, our members!
Now is the perfect time to renew or join MWA!
