Saco Watershed Collaborative - spans over 135 linear miles from the White Mountains National Forest in NH to the Saco Estuary in ME


What has your RCP or organization done that others will be interested in learning?

The Saco Watershed Collaborative, founded in 2017, has attracted 50+ local, regional, state, federal partners in less than 3 years to sustain the Saco River as a drinking water source for future generations. The University of New England, an academic and global health leader located at the mouth of the Saco River, is the convener, fiscal agent, and unofficial ambassador for our Collaborative. The Collaborative has two (2) part-time staff (Emily Greene, outreach coordinator + Robyn Saunders, project manager), numerous professors (Drs. Chris Feurt, Pam Morgan, Steve Zeeman, Moreno-Baez) and many public + private stakeholders involved in ensuring the long-term success and sustainability of the Saco Watershed Collaborative and the watershed itself as a resource for future generations.


What are you interested in working on with other members of the RCP Network?

Multi-stakeholder engagement + multi-state initiatives (data management, outreach, stewardship, conservation, communications/marketing, etc.) Sustainable funding mechanisms + attracting non-traditional donors/sponsors Landscape-scale restoration/conservation initiatives Public-private partnerships And much more (try me!)
