May Day: Next Forum May 1

We cover a lot of global issues and clean technologies here at the Forum. But did you know that in 2003 the Ipswich River was designated one of the “10 Most Endangered Rivers in America”?  The Ipswich is a critical resource. It’s also one of the most beautiful features of our region.

Our next Forum features guest speaker Wayne Castonguay, Executive Director of the Ipswich Watershed Association.

Water is global challenge. Locally, the Ipswich River watershed is home to 160,000 of us here and includes about 21 towns here on the North Shore. It provides drinking water to 335,000 people and thousands of businesses in 14 communities here. It’s a vital resource to us.

The Ipswich River Watershed Association is an advocacy organization that serves as the voice of the river and works to ensure that sure there is enough clean water for people and nature. As executive director, Wayne works in many areas of water policy, management and sustainability. Wayne has a BS in Fisheries and Wildlife Biology and an MS in Oceanography and lives in Ipswich, Massachusetts.

Everyone's welcome to join us and network with our business and technology members.
