The Nashua River Watershed Association (NRWA) invites them to join in for “Science Saturdays” Nov. 10 and Dec. 1, from 1 to 2:30 p.m., at the NRWA River Resource Center, 592 Main St. (Route 119), Groton.?

At the conclusion of each day, students will receive a certificate from the NRWA that demonstrates their accomplishments.

Science Saturdays will be led by Mary Marro, NRWA's Environmental Education Director.? Marro is an environmental biology scientist with hundreds of hours of experience working with youth of all ages.
