There are many ways to get involved with helping the Missisquoi River Basin Association. Please consider joining us in the effort to protect this invaluable natural resource.
- Attend our monthly board meetings. Our board meetings take place from 7:00-9:00 PM on the first Thursday of every month. Because the Missisquoi River watershed spans both Franklin and Orleans counties, the location of our meetings varies from month to month. Meetings are open to the public and we encourage you to come join us. Check our events page for monthly location and details.
- Volunteer with tree planting in the spring and fall. We rely on our dedicated volunteers to keep our projects in motion. Come join us to help plant trees and shrubs that will stabilize banks and create wildlife corridors. Equipment and instruction will be provided, and we always have fun with our work! Watch our events page for upcoming work days throughout the watershed.
- Volunteer for water sampling. Every other week throughout the summer, we collect water samples at set locations throughout the watershed. The samples are then sent for laboratory testing so that we can accurately monitor the health and changes of our watershed over time. The MRBA has more than 10 years of water sampling information – a valuable look at our watershed – and we need to keep monitoring. Training sessions for how to collect the samples, and where to deliver them, will occur in the spring – check our events page for dates!
- Write your legislators about the importance of clean water and river bank stabilization.
