Water for Health

SSWA has been collecting water quality data in our region since 2015.

You can now access our data through the Atlantic Data Stream network. 


The Tidings newsletter is written every winter, spring, & fall by our technicians to bring you the latest in watershed news. We talk with local experts, explain the latest in conservation efforts, and break down what it means to be a part of a watershed.

Planting Guide

The following list has been compiled to assist landowners in deciding what native Acadian Forest trees and shrubs to plant on their property, in their buffer zones, or along their shoreline. This list is composed of plants normally available to the watershed groups throughout the spring-fall seasons.
