2nd annual innovative community partner award
in 2010, gws was lucky enough to partner with the friends of the mystic river and the mystic river watershed association to create a comprehensive invasives removal project on the mystic river. our work would not have been nearly as successful without the partnership, support, and guidance of the four local yacht and boat clubs. this year’s award is jointly presented by gws, the friends of the mystic river, and the mystic river watershed association!
a sincere thank you to the medford boat club, and the mystic wellington, riverside and winter hill yacht clubs for all of your support in 2010 and for a continued partnership for years to come.
