Meet the Marys – Annual Celebration

This year, we cannot hold our Annual Celebration of the Marys River in the same way that we have traditionally done so over the past 15+ years while maintaining social distance. But we want a way to encourage members, donors, supporters, and friends to connect with the Marys River and the businesses that call the Marys River home. 

Within the next months, we plan to create an interactive map of ways to connect with the Marys River, featuring many of the businesses, artists, parks, and points of interest in the watershed. We also plan to hold our own virtual tours and educational events, as well as provide a platform for others to share the work they have going on in the Marys River.
