The Middleton Stream Team: Our project sponsor and a great group of people. Their hard work and dedication is what really got the project off of the ground. I could not have gotten this far without them.
The Ipswich River Watershed Association: Our financial agent and unofficial project sponsor, their expertise on the threats of the Ipswich River and experience dealing with similar large projects has guided us through many hurdles.
The Ipswich River Wildlife Sanctuary: Provided canoes to help us drag a full kiosk and tools all the way out to Colt Island. Another great group of people with a beautiful property.
The Essex County Greenbelt Association: Landowner for the Rowley Bridge Road kiosk in Topsfield.
The Mass. Division of Wildlife and Fisheries: Landowner for the High Street / Route 97 kiosk in Topsfield.
The Topsfield Conservation Commission: Helped me through the hurdle of getting three riverfront kiosks approved by the appropriate persons.
The Middleton Conservation Commission: Approved me to install the kiosk at Thunder Bridge.
The Hamilton Conservation Commission: Approved me to install the kiosk on Colt Island.
The Department of Conservation and Recreation: Landowner for the Bradley Palmer State Park kiosk on Ipswich Road in Hamilton. After interning with them, I have come to learn that they are a well run agency whose scope covers not only Bradley Palmer, but hundreds of thousands of additional acres across MA as well.
The New England Grassroots Environment Fund: A grant making agency based out of Montpelier, VT. A $1,250 grant from them has been the single largest source of funding for this project. We could have gotten nowhere without their funding.
Moynihan Lumber of North Reading, MA: A lumber company based out of North Reading, MA. Their large lumber donation and rebate for the project has provided all of the lumber that the kiosks required.
The Topsfield Historical Society: Their $250 donation provided an additional crucial funding source for the project.
