River Stewardship


The Westfield River’s high-quality coldwater streams support the best representations of fluvial fish communities in Massachusetts and one of the best opportunities for river conservation in Southern New England.  With help from you and our watershed neighbors, the Westfield River has become a model for river conservation across the Commonwealth and the country. You and our local communities are vital to the health of the river and its resources. We promote stewardship of the river and its resources in the following ways:

In addition we offer grants, technical assistance, and river project reviews to help landowners, communities and organizations promote river stewardship.  Please see Grants & Assistance for details.
