The Greenwich Bay Watershed Group
Greenwich Bay Watershed Group was founded by the late Leah Robinson, a long-time
Warwick resident. Leah and founding organizers met through serving on the
Greenwich Bay Special Area Management Plan Citizens Advisory Committee. Leah
poured through the Greenwich Bay water quality data then available from the
special area management documents and believed additional volunteer monitoring
of Greenwich Bay and its watershed was necessary. Through her efforts with
fellow members, the Greenwich Bay Watershed Group recently received a $2,000
grant from the New England Grassroots Environment Foundation in response to
our application for funding 2005 water quality monitoring of 7 freshwater
tributary sites around Greenwich Bay—a project which will be conducted
in working coordination with URI Watershed Watch.
We welcome you to join
our group. We are for the most part a virtual group. Some face-to-face meetings
are held, especially during the warmer months.
We hope that you enjoy
our site and find it to be informative. It will never be complete because
we are all volunteers who are squeezing in time here and there to keep it
updated. We welcome additional volunteer efforts. If you have a web page in
mind that fits into this site, let us know. We can help you build the page
and insert it into this site.
