Keynote Presentation: History of Breakheart Reservation
This year's event will feature a keynote presentation by local authors Alison Simcox and SRWC Vice President Doug Heath about the history of Breakheart Reservation in Saugus.

The Council will also present its River Stewardship Awards, highlight 2012 accomplishments, and elect officers and board members for 2013.
