We encourage everyone to get outside to enjoy our beautiful town. Look for information about our 2018 photo contest that will be posting soon. Then you can send us your photos for the 2018 contest. The Middleton Stream Team holds the contest each year in order to encourage everyone to get outside and see our beautiful section of the Ipswich River Watershed. We have many wetlands, ponds, and brooks to explore. Or you can relax at our five canoe/kayak river landings and enjoy the river view.
