Greenscapes North Shore Coalition and South Shore WaterSmart are the “local faces” of the Greenscapes Massachusetts stormwater coalition. Each implements a customized program in their region by collaborating with local communities, volunteers, businesses, and other partners. The regional services offered vary depending on community funding and interest, and include workshops and presentations, distribution of materials and displays, media relations, and consultations.
The Greenscapes North Shore Coalition is a collaborative of municipalities and partner organizations, focusing on stormwater and watershed related issues. Specifically, Greenscapes provides outreach and education to support municipal compliance with water-related regulatory requirements, including the MS4 Stormwater and the Water Management Act permits. Since its founding in 2007, Greenscapes partners have delivered outreach and education services across the North Shore. Partner organizations include:
- Eight Towns and the Great Marsh
- Ipswich River Watershed Association
- Merrimack River Watershed Council
- Salem Sound Coastwatch
North Shore municipalities join the Greenscapes North Shore Coalition with an annual Greenscapes service fee (dues). Our team of experts works closely with our communities to tailor their outreach and address their specific needs. By working together, we can take advantage of economies of scale, share new ideas and perspectives, and enjoy many other benefits.
