The Ipswich River is one of Essex Counties hidden Gems. Not only does it provide clean water to nearly 1/3 of a million people, it also provides important habitat to wildlife that we all enjoy everyday . Did I mention the spectacular recreation we have in our back yard? Go for a paddle on the Ipswich River sometime and you will understand why it needs to stay healthy for the next generation. The Ipswich River Watershed Association works everyday to help preserve this for you and your kids to enjoy. Thank you IRWA and thank you for your support!
