The Resilient Taunton Watershed Network (RTWN)
Our overarching goal is to promote the resiliency of the Taunton Watershed in the face of climate change and development, considering ecological outcomes as well as economic, social, and environmental justice issues. A resilient watershed is one that has the capacity to adjust to stresses and disturbances, while still able to provide valuable ecosystem services and functions, such as provision of a clean and plentiful water supply and flood protection. We will leverage our resources, knowledge, and skills, and work through an integrated watershed approach towards measurable results.
We are working together to identify and implement the most promising solutions that advance both ecological and economic wellbeing by protecting existing green infrastructure, promoting ecological restoration, integrating climate change concerns, and supporting programs and future development patterns that use land and infrastructure efficiently to improve conditions for all residents.
You can become a member of the RTWN to stay informed and to share your knowledge of the needs and issues in the watershed. All are welcome.
