Project Watershed has been around since 1993 – mapping and restoring habitat, creating educational materials, and conducting environmental research projects. In the last few years, Project Watershed has embarked on some large scale projects including the Kus-kus-sum initiative, which aims to raise $6.5 million for the acquisition and restoration of an abandoned sawmill, and the Coastal Restoration Plan, which guides habitat restoration from Oyster River to Fanny Bay over the next 4 years. As we expand our scope of work, we are looking to expand our Board of Directors.
