Reflections on a River – 30 Years of Protecting the Lamprey River

See how our story began and view other videos on our YouTube channel.



The Lamprey River Watershed Association (LRWA) was formed in 1983 to promote the restoration, conservation, wise development and use of the natural resources of the Lamprey River Watershed. Conserving fish and wildlife, forests, soil and water resources along with pollution abatement are key goals of the Association. Through education and research, the LRWA will work to increase the understanding among citizens about the importance of water and land conservation in the watershed.

The Lamprey River Watershed Association works in partnership with other conservation organizations and citizen groups to maintain or improve the natural health and beauty of the watershed. The Lamprey Watershed Association, Inc. is a non-profit 501 (c) (3) organization.

LRWA Board of Directors – meetings are on the third Monday of each month at 7 pm at the Lee Safety Complex.  Public welcome.  Prospective board members encouraged to contact LRWA at 659-9363.  All skills can be put to good use helping to make our watershed sustainable!
