Mystic River Watershed Association
The EBC Award for Leadership by a Non-Profit Organization is awarded to the Resilient Mystic Collaborative (RMC) in recognition of the incredible partnership of the 20 communities in the Mystic River Watershed working together to protect their people and places from climate-intensified risks. Within 18 months of its founding, the RMC raised over $2.5 million in regional climate resilience funding to support regional stormwater flood management, storm-hardening critical regional infrastructure, next-generation coastal flood management, and closing climate equity gaps among residents and workers based on race and income.
This award was established by resolution of the Board of Directors on February 5, 2001 in recognition of outstanding environmental, energy, or climate change leadership by a non-profit organization.View Past Award Winners
