Have you ever wondered where you can walk along the Mystic?

Through funding from Massachusetts Environmental Trust (MET), the Mystic River Watershed Association developed an Urban Trail Map for the Mystic River and its tributaries. The goal of this map is to help watershed residents find their way to river access points in order to encourage healthy enjoyment of the river. The map will highlight unique ecological features and environmental conditions from Medford to Chelsea. The map and activity guide will be offered in english and spanish, and provide a structured learning opportunity for families, teachers, and community-based organizations.  

If you would like a copy of this map, please send $5 per map to MyRWA, 20 Academy ST, STE 306, Arlington, MA  02476-6401. PLEASE INCLUDE YOUR ADDRESS, INDICATE HOW MANY MAPS YOU WOULD LIKE AND IF YOU PREFER THE MAP IN ENGLISH OR SPANISH. We will send it out to you right away!! As always, if you have any questions, please send us an email at:
