You know us, we do a lot with a little in working to restore and protect the Rahway River and its ecosystems. The Rahway River Watershed Association (RRWA) has been working to protect and restore the Rahway River in all 24 towns of our watershed for 30 years. We engage and educate our community by organizing cleanups, eradicating invasive species, creating and maintaining native plant gardens, running ecology walks and birding events, and offering recreational activities such as the Spanktown Splash Canoe and Kayak Race. In addition, we advocate behind the scenes for policies that strengthen our ability to effectively do our job, including laws that protect water quality, preserve habitats, and reduce flooding.

This past year we hosted a weeklong river festival -- Rahway RiverFest -- to celebrate the life-giving properties of the Rahway River. Photos can be seen on our website.

In 2020 and 2021 we expanded our water quality monitoring program of the Rahway River and its tributaries. We added macroinvertebrate ID to habitat assessment and salt monitoring. Next year, we hope to add pathogens as a fourth focus to our volunteer program. You can view our 2020/2021 Water Quality Report Card on our website.

In 2022 we will expand our River-Friendly Certification Program for Residents and Schools to include Community Partners.

We need your support to continue our work on your behalf. As the new year begins, we ask you to join us in protecting the Rahway River and its watershed by renewing your membership with the RRWA, or becoming a member if you are new to us. Please use the link below for more information on how to become a member. 

We thank you deeply on the behalf of the local flora and fauna of the Rahway River Watershed.
