Raritan Headwaters Association 60th Anniversary

On the evening of Saturday, Sept. 21, Raritan Headwaters will hold a festive 60th anniversary celebration at its headquarters, Fairview Farm Wildlife Preserve, located at 2121 Larger Cross Road, Bedminster. The “country-chic” evening will include live music by Maribyrd, delicious food by BEX Catering and Metropolitan Seafood, and a live auction conducted by auctioneer Nick Dawes of Heritage Auctions and Antiques Roadshow.
“Our celebration theme is the Year of the Brook Trout. This beautiful native fish is symbolic of our 60 years of success protecting clean water in local rivers and streams,” said Cindy Ehrenclou, Raritan Headwaters’ executive director.
To add to the milestone celebration, all attendees will receive a commemorative book covering RHA’s history, present-day stories, and a vision for the future.
Raritan Headwaters was formed by the 2011 merger of two nonprofit conservation groups, the Upper Raritan Watershed Association (URWA) and the South Branch Watershed Association (SBWA), both founded in 1959 to engage New Jersey residents in safeguarding water sources and natural ecosystems.
Today, Raritan Headwaters is known as a leader in environmental education and outreach, local and statewide advocacy, water quality monitoring, ecological research, habitat restoration, land preservation and stewardship. RHA is the watchdog for the 470-square-mile North Branch and South Branch Raritan River watershed, which encompasses 38 municipalities in Hunterdon, Somerset and Morris counties.
