Woonasquatucket River — Be A Part Of It

Sure, there’s lots going on tomorrow night, but what did you have planned for the morning and evening? Shake off that hangover, get your Ganny canny in gear, and head to the Valley to do your part to support our National Heritage River.
Saturday Morning Cleanup — Participating in the International Coastal Cleanup, the Woonasquatucket River Watershed Council is running not one but two cleanup parties tomorrow morning, both in Providence from 9am to noon. Come down to either Riverside Park on Aleppo Street or the dam at Rising Sun Mills on Valley Street. (It’s best if you call ahead to Lisa at 401.861.9046.) Tools will be provided, but be sure and wear working clothes. A limited supply of hip waders will be available for those going into the water to pull out the less desirable artifacts of our industrial and consumer heritage, but you can also just works the banks if you prefer.
Oh, and did we mention that volunteers will get refreshments and T-shirts?
Saturday Evening Flying Fish — The WRWC fleet will be on the water paddling with giant bright fish from Clear Currents (as seen above) symbolizing our community’s commitment to improving the water quality of our river and bay!
There are a couple spots left for experienced paddlers: Call Bruce Hook at 401.351.5747 right now!
