Volunteer Opportunity

The Souhegan River Local Advisory Committee (SoRLAC) is seeking a community member from Amherst to serve.   If interested please contact Mary Guild, mguild@amherstnh.gov .

The purpose of the Rivers Management and Protection Program, established in 1988 and defined in RSA 483, is to protect certain New Hampshire rivers, called designated rivers, for their outstanding natural and cultural resources. The Souhegan is one of those rivers. The program is administered by the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services and uses a two-tier approach to manage and protect rivers at the state and local levels through the advisement of Local River Management Advisory Committees (LACs).
