Watershed Education Programs

The Division of Water Supply Protection offers educational programs to teach citizens about the importance of the Commonwealth's watersheds.

The Division of Water Supply Protection offers education programs to teach the public about the importance of protecting public drinking water supplies and resources. These programs are offered at the Quabbin and Wachusett Reservoirs where staff, exhibits, and materials help teach people about the history and important features of our watersheds. These programs are provided for the general public, school groups and special interest groups.

Out of an abundance of caution due to the spread of COVID-19 in Massachusetts, the Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) has announced the temporary closure of certain agency managed facilities - including the Quabbin Visitor Center - effective Saturday, March 14, 2020 through Wednesday, April 1, 2020 at which time DCR will reassess circumstances. Additionally, during the temporary closure all associated events at these locations are cancelled.
