Mill River Wetland Committee has a simple mission:
To educate the community about the value of watersheds, to advocate for their continued protection, and to engage all people in the fight to protect our environment.

May 18 - Sept 1

Visit the new exhibit at the Fairfield Museum and History Center that highlights Joy Shaw and her development of the River Lab Program:  Pioneering Conservation: From Mabel Osgood Wright to Today.

Learning doesn’t stop when you leave the classroom. MRWC works with the whole community to become educated about the watershed we share.
